Shooting, testing, crossing Maui, Hawaii.

 Shooting, testing, crossing Maui, Hawaii.

I am in Hawaii since two weeks to test some kites, surfboards and to do the shoot for the catalog.

It’s a little late in the season to get big waves, but here we are never disappointed, and there is always something to do.

With Sky Solbach (North Kiteboarding Team rider, and also in charge of the R & D) We spend few days on the water with Ken Winner (North designer), to set some kites.

We did the shooting, with Elliot Leboe for the video and Tracy Kraft for the picture. We toured a lot (by car) to look for spots, the weather was not really into the game with a lot of rain this week.

We finally managed to complete the shoot, conclude by a crossing between two islands.

We left at 3, with Ken and Sky, 3/4 of the crossing, I broke a board (a prototype) impossible to come back, which provoked a pretty funny scenario.
We ended up on an island, hitchhiking to get to the town, buying clothes in a shop and we were finally able to get back at home the next day by boat.

I’m going back to France and will be next week at the event “defi de la Baule”
