      Well go ahead and put Mokuleia Beach on your bucket list of 'must kite' spots in the world. This place is unbelievable at best and out of this world at worst. Got to the spot late and everybody was coming in on 7's and 8's so i rigged a 12 and a Twin for the head-high perfectly peeling lefts breaking on the clearest water. Finest 2 hours on this Earth slashing waves and tearing down the line. 

      Pics below describe the scene better than words ever could, best session ever!  Oahu Surf map also to show location, this is all the way at the NW tip of the island, pretty much end of the road and where LOST was filmed in case you recognize it.

      HA! That's da truth, the Mokes I've run into have invited us over to Emu at their 'house' which turns out is 3-Eureka draw-tents tarped together at the beach park. Turns out if you have a rod with a line in the water you can camp anywhere overnight. Good advice from a Cat guide and fellow kiter. 

      Mokuleia was downright delicious today....rolled up at 2pm to 10+ kiters riding overhead waves in 2 foot deep crystal clear water on 7m kites. Immediately an Epic Screamer crashes onto the brush separating the beach from the parking lot and lo and behold Top hat runs over and saves the day. Epicness ensued promptly as I pumped my 12 and headed out into the building swell rolling in from a recent storm in Tahiti. Some of the floatiest Airs off perfect of ramps toward the outside followed by toeside down the line turns back into the shoreline break made the session 'best ever all time' good. 

      Only way I'm coming back to the mainland is if climate change triggers an ice age on da Camas and the POW days of old return. 

      Maholo Chinchahotos!

      ...for camping...be sure to take a "Soverign Nation of Hawaii" sign to post at campsite...they do super job of intimidating haole's to stay away, are free-ticket to camp indefinitely w/ yer own chickens & pigs, takeover public water & showers for yer private use, and raise your kids there schooling 'em in panhandling 101 up thru graduate level courses...

      Yea Jon you know the area well, those options have all been considered and the decision today is Mokuleia up North for 7m goodness. Blowing 20+ out the door of our condo in Punaluu so we'll prolly get tempted to do a downwinder from Haikula to Malaekahana but will save that for tomorrow. 

      Camping at Kaena Point after kiting tomorrow should be awesome!

      Moke is a term used by residents of the Hawaiian Islands to describe segments of the local Polynesian population. In practice, the word "moke" is similar to "redneck", as it is only used to describe a certain personality type, instead of an entire ethnic group

      Thanks for pix & sitrep!  Hit it darn good to get 12m stuff 'cause very often its big rig territory.  When winds light, be careful about traveling very deep into downwind shadow of the Mokes.  Did that once on 16m & huge board, and got too deep in the bay to get out & did half-hour slow death thing steadily losing ground until inches away from dumping kite literally at back door of one of those ritzy homes in Lanikai!  For real, seconds away from dumping the wind mercifully kicked up just 1-2mph, enough to get back out & outathere.
      Monty prolly has better tips, but....
      - you can also do downwinder from Kailua to Waimanalo...be sure any car parked at Waimanalo is in public view.
      - Be sure to hit Mokuleia on western end of northshore by Dillingham airstrip (where the gliders & skydivers fly).  That's usually 10m-12 stuff for twintips & 7-9m for wavekiting.  Cool spot to see all the water & airborne play.  Tophat's always there & you can score pic w/ him & frame it over yer fireplace like J. Brickner!
      - checkout Hukilau beach north of you in Laie...best kite spot on eastern shore I think.
      - "Hole's" are like pits you dig in the ground, or the things bullets make in signs..."Haules" are caucasian versions of "Mokes"
      Enjoy those hairdryer winds on the dreads!

      Solid sessions in Kailua so far with 12M conditions dominating. Twin tip not enough today so demo'd some new North & Slingshot Surfboards and rode up to the Moke islands. Hairdryer winds so smooth it makes LP on a good day look like chopped spam, nothing but grade A filet mignon out here Hole's and Mokes! 

      See ya on da mainland before too long, still have a downwinder from Haikula to Malakaena (locals special) and Molukeiwa (hammerhead kitesurfing) to do before getting back on de plane this weekend. 

      Few pics, but no video b/c the ole GoPro housing busted a gasket and ruined the cam.
