It was a great day for a Superbowl Surf Clinic, the sun was shining and the winds were way down. I told everyone to show up early and we had 8 paddlers attending. During the on-shore class, we focused on what kind of wave works best for a touring Kayak like the Scupper Pro, a Rec Kayak and a dedicated surf kayak. We also discussed some Surf Etiquette which has been important in past surf clinics. This year though the teams of the Super Bowl were a huge draw and we practically had the whole Mauka side of Mokulua Nui to ourselves, when Sailor Steve and I surfed some of the choice waves of the morning. Soon it was time to return back to Lanikai and we began the long paddle home. It was a great day to enjoy both surfing and watching the Super Bowl later that afternoon.
