I imagine with foils now a lot of people are foiling 1000 peaks, guard rails, and the harbor?
Guardrails has become THE foil spot. Living within biking range I'm awfully tempted to learn. The longboard waves at Kahului harbor have been popular with foilers for years but this was the first time I saw them on the ledging wave west of the channel. It's usually a shortboard & bodyboard spot. As we were loading the ski on the trailer a guy was walking toward the water with a body-foil board. You get any photos of him Clinton?

I’d learn if I was biking distance for sure.

it's quite interesting when the rich lock themselves into a lifestyle that no one else can afford and then there's no one to serve them because no one else can afford to live there.

Truly funny! My wife and I were discussing this when folks started to buy up homes in Hanalei 6 to 7 years ago. Exact same topic. Price the locals out. Whose going to cut your lawn, repair your plumbing, give you electricity to your hot tub, etc ....???

Bonefish?

I do not know much about fish/fishing.
Yeah, they're a classic salt water sport fish. Molokai is low-key one of the best destinations in the world for them. They're relatively unpressured, and big compared to other places. Average fish for Molokai would be considered trophy size in the Bahamas. Of course here you're fishing over reef, so they're a lot harder to spot than over uniform white sand and if you get wrapped around a coral head bye bye fishie. Trade winds are also usually a factor, but we really scored on that front. Had no wind until about 2pm.

This is like endgame fly fishing, your skills have to be on point. Buddy I went with caught twice as many fish as I did just because he's able to punch out to 40' accurately. The reward is a fish that will go on a run straight into your backing.

o'io!...like sponge said...bonefish...nasty to try if you don't know how...you cant skin it and fillet and eat him like anything else normal fish...they got 10 thousands little fine bones like hair all throughout the fish...almost invisible until it gets stuck in your throat...so you gotta fillet with the skin on and take a meat tenerizer hammer and smush the hell outta the meat...then scrape the meat mash off with a spoon...then you get fish hamburger patties to cook ...

One day hopefully @steamroller surf genetics,
may it rub off on all in the water,
regardless of craft.

bruddah Rolla rides just about any surfboard type related watercraft on surface or elevated, above . He excels in the pit of a challenging skatepark "bowl", and pushing an energy of concise, predictable, movements of grace and caution. Steamroller, moves on ~PPK

I hope he does not get offended, but he looks like the guy in the old Primo beer ads, even more legend status.
