Tourists of the Sea: Episode 2 is the latest Maui Nerds Production featuring Kevin Pritchard and Graham Ezzy... If you missed the first episode, have a look here!
Some words from Kevin:
I had just booked my ticket to go to Park City to visit my girlfriend when I happened to check the forecast for Tahiti and saw an 18 second interval pop into the forecast window. I called up Graham Ezzy and he started looking into it as well.
We arrived to Punta San Carlos to mast high waves and 4.2 wind. It was blasting. One problem, I didn’t bring my 4.2. Shoot. Well lucky for me, the guys at SoloSports carry the new Ezzy Elite sails, and bam! I was out on the water.
Fully overpowered, mast high, insane conditions. This is just what the doctor ordered. Wave after wave, it was insane."
"Growing up in Southern California, Baja is where my brother and I learned to windsurf in the waves. It is the best spot in the world in my opinion to learn to wave sail.
This was it, this is what we had dreamed of all our lives, wind, waves, and the biggest south swell of the summer hitting Baja. I had waited 20 years, I know that dates me, but I really had waited 20 years to get this place like with the waves like we had. It sounds cliché but it was a dream come true. I mean for the last 15 years of my professional career, to be able to take time to jet down for a swell when you are competing on the PWA World Tour, is pretty tough to pull off.
The worlds aligned, it came together and for the next three days, we had all we could handle. Wave after wave, set after set, it was just awesome. I am still glowing from the trip and can’t wait for the next surgical strike."
Stay tuned for the next episode...
