Adventure! Made a rather spur-of-the-moment decision to come down to Australia, and windsurf in the historic Merimbula Classic! Celebrating its 37th concecutive year, the event focuses purely on overall impression, for the entire week! Day 1 has been a fun foil-windsurf test run, this weekend we'll see some swell! @merimbulasailboardclub
Here where a windsurfer shines: balanced between the wind and waves. Harnessing two colossal energies into a harmony, ○ releasing them into powerful dissonance. ● I'm happy to have the best @naishsails equipment ever, under my feet for the 2018 season! #naishteam #quikteam 📷: @fishbowldiaries
This past weekend was such an amazing way to end a solid month of racing! Setting a new 2-man team record for the @molokai2oahu with @michisilence ○ It felt so good to build throughout July, winning the stock divisions in the @maui2molokai • @officialmauijim Gorge Downwind Champs • and the #PoiBowl • All the while learning more and more about racing, experiencing the sea, and pushing my own personal envelope! That's what I've really found rewarding in racing, the process of looking inwards and focusing on making positive changes, baby steps... I can't say I've always felt this way about training and racing, sometimes we are blind to the most plain and obvious things! Thanks to everyone for your continued support, especially my sponsors #naishteam #dakinesurf #quikteam #blackprojectsup
Stoked to have been able to shoot back home for the Poi Bowl race and take the 14' division. Every race, I learn a little more! Thanks to @joshriccio for making me wanna throw up the whole way 😂 Epic job #naishteam with @ethankoopmans coming in 1st in the 12'6" @annie__starr coming in 1st in the 14' division, and @kai_lenny coming in 1st for the Foil division!
After the Maui2Molokai I feel like paddling more and more! On a plane tonight to the Gorge for the Maui Jim Downwind Champs 💪Hood River provides the most exceptional downwind conditions imaginable and I can't pass up a chance to run that sweet line!

We live in a very unique time, experiencing something our ancestors from civilizations' past would have never dreamed, total Freedom. The ability to chase whatever dream no matter what it is or who you are. Today we honor the people who gave up their dreams, so we could live ours, who forsook life for this ideal of liberty, thank you #MemorialDay
You experience this moment of passage when foiling... this brief transitional state between the normal and the surreal, when you shed away all the surface resistance from your board, and allow your wings (the carbon foil beneath your feet, and the monofilm foil in your hands) to take flight~ #naishteam
