Last nights on Kauai we partied with team Canada and Matt played his first game of Gridiron, apparently whitey tells us never to call it this to North Americans??! So it was a dusty transit off to Mauai after a solid session on the Mai Tais.
Two days left on this amazing island. Not sure how Maui will compare, have met some great people, and surfed some fun waves. Tonight we have been invited to join the locals at Haena beach for a Hawaiin version of a Hangi to celebrate thanksgiving, we have been told that they have two wild bores on ice!
Camping on Kauai’s Hanalei Bay, home town of the Iron’s Brothers, at $3 a night, hard to beat. Good people, locals bon-firing it up on the beach at night and waking up to 4ft rights handers.
A Great Part of the planet, crazy lava mountains dropping almost on top of the sand in some areas. Arrived late expecting a tough night in an economy hire car, got talking to the hire car crew and think they felt sorry for us with so much gear so scored us a free upgrade to this crazy ford Flex Seppo guzzler with more room than a bus! Yeah Boy!
First night camping and were welcomed into a crazy local hippie party…..interesting friendly bead weaving heads indeed, but gathered some good info on the island that saw us head west.
Spent last night camped up on the Waimea Canyon at about 4000ft, first good test of the gear and we managed to stay dry, both guessing that’s probably why we were the only 2 humans in the entire state park overnight! Plenty of wild roosters and chickens to keep us company.
So its more surfing and hammock time as we camp between 3 sites on the North Shore and try to find a place to leave our gear so we can hike the Kalalau trail to the Napali coast. Until next update, take it easy, were going surfing.
