"We were both super salty and there was some serious negative energy going on!"
Today I couldn’t help but feel stressed about the Naish Paddle Championship. I’ve been surfing and windsurfing so much that the 10 mile run from Maliko to the Kahului Harbor kind of snuck up on me! So, in hopes to prepare myself for the race, my Dad and I went for a downwinder from Maliko to Kanaha. But, before either of us realized it, my stress had spread and we were having an argument about loading boards in the truck. My Dad was arguing about the fact that I didn’t have the initiative to hold the door open for him in the wind and I was arguing because I help him 24/7 in the summer!
As we drove up to Maliko we were both super salty and there was some serious negative energy going on! We went out together and I decided to stay back with him and hopefully get positive vibes again! After a while we both started catching some great glides and the ocean was taking its effect! Then my Dad spoke up and said he was sorry for getting mad and I said “Darn right!”, just kidding. I said I was really sorry and that I was just super stressed about this race. But it seemed like as I said it I realized I wasn’t so worried anymore! It seems like a good day on the water can cure anything...
