Patri McLaughlin: Feeling Good

Coffee break this morning? Pull up a chair and get stoked for some wave riding with this awesome edit featuring the very talented Patri McLaughlin. Discovering hidden gems in Maui over the winter months, and clearly having alot of fun, Patri makes it all look a doddle with his fluid, smooth style. Enjoy!

While the north shore of Maui suffered a major wind drought this winter, Patri McLaughlin finds world class waves in some of the most dangerous and least explored places on Maui. Unnamed beachbreak walls provide ample ramps for massive carves, giant punts and incredible rolls. Then, at the rarest of gems, Kona Lanes, Patri battles the elements and an invasion of feral windsurfers, and picks off the best of the best. There are no maps of the outer reefs, but you will find Patri there. In the end, Patri exit’s the season with wind and waves in Maui’s incredible kitesurfing arena feeling good. Aloha and goodluck
