Robby moved over because he owns NaishSails and Boards, and Maui has more exposure than Oahu. Naish kites are #1 selling.
I don't mind surfsailing with a 6 meter sail and 100 liter board. Don't need to plane out, just to get out and upwind, then ride the wave in.
I have no idea where the outside scenes of RIP are taken, but one week before filming began, Naish and Cabrina joined us at Hukilau, and sailing the W break, looks a lot like his slalom board full speed jump stuff, complete with the Maleakahana looking background.
His claim of the boneyards wave is exxagerated, as you know, and can tell from the non changing camera angle. Just like EndlessSummer's little white lie about CapeStFrancis. There is no real way out after riding a wave IN at boneyards, and it sections like you wouldn't believe, you ending up in the shorepound between Sunset's deepest peak, which connects to backyards, and yards itself. Normal course of action after straightening out is the urchin dance while trying to stay atop a sand channel.
I've sailed yards with HaroldIggy well over 30 days in 5 years. He liked Oahu because of the lack of yahoos and such. Makena at the old Intercontinental is 5 bottom turn off the lip combo starboard turns, longer than DH.
