After the last report from John Skye (RRD boards, MFC), we've been inundated with tales from the PWA's finest about their escapades at jaws.
Diony Guadagnino (Hot Sails Maui, MFC) was one of the lucky few to sail the break last week, so here's his story:
"For a Venezuelan it’s a dream come true to drop in at Jaws. Ever since I was a kid, all I did was watch videos of Jaws and Hookipa. I have such great respect for Jaws, and am very thankful to the Island of Maui, and its people for helping me get to where I am today.
This was my second time sailing Jaws. When we saw the swell coming about a week before, we got all fired up since it was probably going to be the last big swell of the season. We got out there at around 10am, and my good friend Jose Claudio Nunez from Venezuela took me out on his jet ski, and kept an eye on me in case things went wrong.
Bart de Zwart also came along with me to Jaws. Him and his wife Dagmar used to live in Margarita and run a windsurf school, they gave my sister Colette and I the opportunity to work for them when I was 13, we learned so much from them, and it's thanks to them that our windsurfing dreams came true!
I remember arriving at Jaws that morning and Bart was the first one out, he was catching some bombs, almost triple mast high waves like nothing! There was only 4 sailors out that day, I caught about 12 waves, one after the other. This session definitely pumped me up and was such a great way to start the 2010 season!"
