(Wikipedia) Ho‘okipa Beach Park is located on the north shore of Maui, Hawaii, USA. It is perhaps the most renowned windsurfing site in the world The waves here are largest during the winter, and break across a system of reefs that extend across the bay. During the summer the waves are smaller. Ho’okipa is ideal for windsurfing because of its large well-shaped waves and strong winds. The name Ho‘okipa means “hospitality” in Hawaiian. While ever-present strong winds and powerful currents do not make the beach a place for beginners, experienced surfers and windsurfers flock to Ho’okipa for recreation and for windsurfing competitions.

I’ve been an amateur photographer for as long as I can remember, which at my age is about a couple of weeks! I’ve owned film cameras from Zeiss, Scheider, Leica, Nikon and Olympus, as well as digital cameras from Pentax and Canon, and still have several, if I can ever find them. I currently use a Sony NEX-5N with an 18-55mm zoom lens, and after a year of ownership am still learning all the functions.
