Kailua is like that, you just need to get a big kite and a big board, or better yet a Hydrofoil board.

FabsPH: this too shall pass.... worst spring in a long time.

Hawaiis: impressive low end on the 17 edge. Do you have a 13 I could demo... been wanting to try a 13 and cannot find one out here. would love to try the hydrofoil as well. I know Taut's had one... I am in Kailua too... only question is why are you wearing a full suit? :D end of April was pretty warm. especially with no wind... or really light wind.

My 13 is a Cabrinha Nomad, I use it when wind are howling at 10knots. I wear the wet suit to save my skin from the Sharp Aluminum fins. You are welcome to try it.
