Poking around in Youtube to find something else I came across this.

It seems nuts that we (Bill Boyum and I) used to do this almost every day, and now we don't. I'm always amazed how a GoPro camera can make mountains look like molehills. This was a big day nine years ago. Nobody in their right mind would take a boat out in those conditions, never mind a sliver of carbon and fiberglass. So much fun though. I need to do this again.

Wow, 2013.  The 1080 days.  4K came out in '14. 

HM was the one that told us about fisheye - back in the Panasonic pocket cam days of '09. 

Your cam is set to 720 and at a wide angle - not ideal for what that cam could do. (You always had the best Gopros.)

I saved all my old raw files.  I knew I'd want to watch them in my old age - on better software and monitors.  Those days are here. 

I took some 2013 footage and rendered it thru new software and uploaded it with Youtube at 4k.  They compressed it, but not as bad as back then.     

Gopro is up to number 11 now - 5k.  I'll get one when I lose my 8.

Wow, that looks great, though if you pop it up to full screen you can see all the compression artifacts. Cool video no matter what. I looked at doing a little foil reverse upwind/downwinger on the southside today. but the water looked like gravy.

Here's a clip from the end of that run.  That was a pretty big day, chapeau for going.

I avoided the ocean throughout the recent storm because of the brown water.  If I can see it on the cams, I don't bother driving down to see it in person.       

I went out today, that swell has some power.   It was breaking over the jetty wall at the Kihei boat ramp.  I almost got tagged coming back in.

I looked at Ka'a (gravy), The harbor (gravy with lumps), and south Kihei (coffee, no cream) and said "no thanks". I hope tomorrow things calm down. When I windsurfed I like Kona winds on the south side. Now I'm wondering why.
