What happened?

My buddy and I were planning to do the Maliko Run from Maliko Gulch to Kahului Harbor on a big wave big wind day as usual in our surfskis. Unfortunately just as we were approaching the mouth of the bay we were hit by a severe squall that lasted an hour with winds up to 60 mph. We were driven into the rocks on the left side of the gulch and had to abandon the surfskis whcih smashed up into pieces. I was finally able to climb the rocks to a ledge where i attempted to call 911. As there was no service, I triggered my resqlink 400 and eventually we were rescued by the local lifeguards and fire rescue men.

Words of wisdom

Don’t go out if you get that funny feeling in your gut.

Thank you note

You saved us!
