Let’s Go Paddling: Makapu’u to Kailua

Aloha Paddlers,

It’s time to get in the water again,  we’ve go one of our longer paddles coming up this weekend and the forecast says the weather will be perfect! 

 We’ll be starting at Baby Makapuu and paddling first to the Mokulua Islands where we’ll take a break, do a bit of exploration, shoot the slots, paddle the cove, do some cliff jumping??  – all if winds & surf permitting – and then  paddle over to Kailua Beach and take out there. 

Another benefit of this route is that if you’d like to paddle, but don’t want to do the whole 7 or 8 mile route, you can start at Baby Makapuu and take out at Bellows beach, or start at Bellows Beach and meet us as we paddle by, and take out at Kailua after enjoying the Mokes for a while.  This would allow you to have the same fun but paddle ½ the distance.

So, Here’s the plan:

We’ll meet at Kaupo Beach Park, 300 Kalanianaole Hwy, across the road from Sea Life Park (very West end of parking lot) at 8:00AM .  After offloading boats, we’ll shuttle cars to Kailua Beach Park at 8:20.  After driving back to Kaupo Beach, we should be paddling away from shore at approx. 9:15 and finishing at Kailua Beach at about 1:00 O’clock or so depending on how much time we hang out at the Mokes. The nice thing about this route is that we can stay inside the reef in the protected water, or go out side for a bit of surfing, or head out to Rabbit Island. And then turn over toward the Mokes.  We’ll make our choice depending on conditions and whichever way we decide to go, it’ll be a fun day on the water so we’ll see ya there!!

At this point the weather forecast for this coming weekend is for mild winds, which will make for a great paddle. 

Updates on this paddle and the weather forecast as the week progresses will be posted at  www.meetup.com at the Hua Iki Kayak club.  If you’re planning to attend, be sure to indicate that you’re going at that site.

 Know your capabilities, limits, the conditions and check your equipment before you go. Sun Screen, hat and water are a must. Sun glasses, gloves and dry bag are a good idea. Remember to stay in sight of the group and tell others if you are leaving. You alone are responsible for your health and safety. To check conditions, go to:http://www.surfnewsnetwork.com/    and check the surf and wind forecast to see what it’s saying at that time. Then, knowing the latest forecast, we can all make the decision about whether to come out for this paddle or to go for a paddle somewhere else, or stay home and clean the yard.  Be sure to check the Meetup – Hua Iki site for any changes and updates and to change your RSVP if you change your mind. 

Questions: Call me at the store 808-262-5656 or on the morning of the paddle, you’ll be able to reach me on my cell at 375-1030.

Terry can be reached on his cell: 808-561-5171
