Mark Raaphorst built a new camera mount that we connected to the back of a SIC race board. I teamed up with Livio Menelau to take it out for a test run. We paddled from Maliko Gulch to Kahului Harbor riding wind swells on hollow, light weight SIC V1 Bullets with built in active steering systems.

A group of Maui paddlers catch the Moore Watertime shuttle to Maliko gulch for a downwind run. The trailer was loaded with outrigger canoes, surf ski kayaks and stand up paddle boards. The wind was ENE averaging 15-20mph gusting up to 30mph and the swell was 6-8 feet from the north.

Basic exercises that can be practiced in flat water on a stand up paddle board. This video covers bracing and steering with the paddle. Both of these skills will come in handy on a downwind run.

Exploring the open ocean water off the coast of Maui’s north shore on a 14′ Bullet from SIC made for downwind surfing. The wind was calm and the swell was just starting to arrive.
