. . . here’s a heartwarming story about how a bunch of our windsurfing icons met a true professional!

As you may or may not know I am in Maui on my yearly wave clinic which has been awesome, we have had good wind and waves as well as some good evenings [more]. . . in fact I am writing this blog entry from my bed after my birthday bbq and maybe a few too many drinks, so overall we are having a blast.

On this trip with us is Craig wood who lost his legs and arm fighting for us over in the war, and he is just amazing, he is way more of a man than I am with great humor and ambition. During his trip we organised a few special events for him, the first was at Flat Breads pizza restaurant (owned by Josh Stone) with 15 or so top PWA and international stars including, Robby Naish, Jason Polakow, Francisco Goya etc – the guys I want to talk about:

These guys live here on Maui and have super busy schedules and made the time not only to come for a pizza but all shared their day time to make Craig feel welcome on Maui, Robby even came sailing with my crew and took Craig out on a huge board out in the waves at Spreks for about 4 hours

Rob even let me and my guys go for a sail on his kit which the boys loved

So when we talk about being a pro we dont just talk about how good they are on the water, there are several contributing factors that make the package!
