Re: Drone Kitewave Filming

I was thinking maybe a better solution is something with wings, like a predator aircraft, something with a variable geometry wing that could fly in 15 to 25 knots, some radio contact between you and the câmera, like that one which follows surfers from the beach...

Where exactly is this.

Accessing Lanes

In Maui is impossible for an wave lover not to want to acess the furthest upwind safe access for surfing or a downwinder. The Crown Juel seems the best entrance point. The MKA maps show it is the only area permited to sail in the brakers. How is the bottom? Is there an map on the bottom? And tides? ...

Second....What winds to expect,... is this a strong year? Third......Is Kihei the best compromise between price, avaliabili...

Re: Auto Zenith ???
