Skyeboy on Maui

The latest Brit to arrive on Maui for photoshoots, we catch up with John Skye and find out what’s happening on the North Shore…

As one of RRD’s principle riders and chief R and D testers, John Skye brings his sick wave sailing skills to the team. Flying out to Maui for the photoshoot season, Skyeboy has scored epic conditions every day since arriving in Hawaii. It’s a tough old life…

“I have now been on Maui for just over a week and it has been pretty epic. So far I have sailed everyday, including 2 or 3 mast high days. Its pretty standard out here, with the whole world turning up for their photo shoots. Everyone is ripping, so its fun both to sail, and also to sit on the beach watching the action. The photos we are taking are mostly on next years gear, so ‘cant give too much away yet, but in this shot you dont really see the sail!! Thanks to Jimmie Hepp for the photo.”

The new gear certainly seems to be working for John if this massive Goiter is anything to go by! Make sure you keep up to date with John on his website HERE and keep an eye on the RRD website for more photos of the 2013 gear…

Jimmie Hepp is always capturing the sick action on Hawaii, ‘like’ his Facebook page to see his brilliant photos.
