While the north shore of Maui suffered a major wind drought this winter, North team rider Patri McLaughlin finds world class waves in some of the most dangerous and least explored places on Maui. Unnamed beachbreak walls provide ample ramps for massive carves, giant punts and incredible rolls. Then, at the rarest of gems, Kona Lanes, Patri battles the elements and an invasion of feral windsurfers, picking off the best of the best. There are no maps of the outer reefs, but you’ll find Patri there, and in the end, Patri exits the season with wind and waves, feeling good. (Filming and Edit by Maui Mini Movie)
