It’s December in Maui and it’s Kona time. When the wind blows from the other direction the top pros get the chance to ride clean walls of a big swell. But the conditions are tricky. A lot of water is moving around, the launching over the rocks is tough, the wind blows quite offshore and returning to the beach is a real challenge. Here’s some raw footage from Maui from December 4, 2021. Marcilio Browne, Robby Swift and Ricardo Campello show how they handle the Kona conditions. It’s not all about riding the waves. It’s as well much about how to make it over the wave or where to leave and set a jibe in very light conditions.
