At some point we decided that if not now when? So we ended up packing our bags and kids and set off. For a year we went into the world in search of adventure and to see how the family unit would do under these changed circumstances. Instead of visiting as many places as possible we decided to go the opposite way.
We spent 3 months in Indonesia, about 4 months in Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti, then moved on to Hawaii and last but not least to Costa Rica. The first two episodes are ready and online and the rest are already in post production and should be finished later this year.
Marcilio Browne is a two times World Champion wave sailor – Maui, Hawaii is the ultimate dream of any windsurfer. We decided to see what Marcilio and some of his friends are up to during a regular year.
Together with local champion Morgan Noireaux and many others we tagged along and saw what the guys are doing on their down days, how they prepare for competitions and, of course what goes into sailing a day at Peahi in some of the world’s biggest waves.
Morgan Noireaux is of French extraction but grew up on Maui. He has always been drawn to the water, be it for surfing or windsurfing. For a long time he was known among the local crowd at the kid that was always first on and last off the water.
One year he shot onto the international radar by coming from relative obscurity to international fame by winning the most prestigious wave sailing contest in the world – the Aloha Classic. We wanted to know what a typical month looks like for him.
