1st watershoot at Hookipa - Maui!!
Apparently Hookipa translates into “hospitality”, which is odd. Hookipa beach itself is fairly big, but the launch is tiny with a punchy shore break. Then there are shallow reefs, sharp boulders, no wind on the inside, rips and of course, huge waves. Walk in the beach park really! It can also get horrendously busy with plenty of wipeouts due to collisions. Whatever you do, don’t get involved with Josh Angulo on the water!
