Brandon Scheid simply loves Maui…

Getting ready to shred! LF Team rider Brandon Scheid enjoys the beautiful island of Maui. Check out what he is up to:

So far Maui has been amazing, it has only lacked one minor detail….wind.  Well all that has changed!  With trades lining up for the foreseeable future and two big swells on their way, its officially on.

We managed to sneak in a little kite session a few days ago on the south side of the island in Kehei. It was a little light, but armed with the 12m Envy and 139 Kaos we managed to score some fun.  It was finally nice to get some kiting in, even if it was just a little taste!

We took advantage of the no wind days and did some exploring down the Hana Highway.  We went to the bamboo forests, black sand beaches, and even hiked down a lava tube!  It all ended with a beautiful waterfall and some amazing banana bread!

After some sight seeing we finally got the real deal…trades! Sam, Sensi, Craig and I all headed down to Kite Beach to check it out, by the time we got out of the car there were 50+ kites in the sky.  Guess everyone else has been waiting as well.  I had perfect power on the 9m Envy, Sensi took the 7m and Craig went out on his 9m Hifi.  The wind was the perfect direction for the “Pro Pool” and everyone was having a blast riding.   After riding for a few hours we all headed into the beach for some much needed beers.  What a great day on Maui, can’t wait for more!!!
