Our Weekly Pit Stops at Lanikai Point
We often make a pit stop at Lanikai Point throughout the work week to check out the conditions and simply enjoy the fresh air.
Similar to last week when we visited Halona blowhole, the trade winds have been blowing steadily all week.
Rick's favorite part of these conditions is seeing the windsurfers and kiters come out to play in Kailua. Kailua Bay's trade winds make it a popular destination for windsurfers and kite surfers of all skill levels, whether they are beginners or advanced riders.
Kailua has hosted various international windsurfing competitions over the years, which has further put it on the map as a world-class windsurfing/kitesurfing destination. Rick participated in a number of these competitions in the 70's and 80's.
Overall, Kailua Bay is considered one of the best spots in the world for windsurfing and kitesurfing, and it's a great spectacle during our Lanikai point pit stops!
