Packed the tools for Maui this afternoon...

Sails : KA Kult's. 4.7, 5.3 and 5.8

Masts : Nolimitz (2) 430's and a custom 410. Bombproof in the surf.

Booms : Isthmus V12 carbons. Super small grip and tough as nails.

Bases/extensions : Chinook. Bombproof.

Harness : Dakine Nexus. I'm a sliding bar kinda guy. ;-)

SUP Paddle : Kialoa carbon. Light, strong and excellent power.

Board : RRD 99 liter Wavetwin. Josh is drooling to get this in the washout surf at Uppers to see what it can do. Me? I'm thinking Hoo will be a blast on this board - and I'll love the extra liters when I screw up and end up in the wind shadow just off the rocks. (grin)

Packed up for easy transport. Ready to go! The quiver bag it just at the airline max weight, provided they don't lower it again this coming week.

The best part is my clothing bag. Sure I'm gonna be there for 10+ days or so, but with Maui, all you need are a few board shorts, t-shirts and flip flops. That is running with me as a carry on. If I wasn't taking gear, I'd not be checking anything, and its kinda enticing to head to the island without any checked bags.

glad to hear I'm not the only one bringing only gear ;). Seriously, if I get mustard on my one shirt on day one, I'll be wearing the mustard for the rest of the week.

Oh, and that 410 custom mast... don't you mean sawed-off 430?
