We found a new spot on the north shore of Maui, after the country lane near our home got too complicated. This place is so beautiful, we just had to share it with you.

Beach Walk 777 – Be the Effect and SUP!

standup paddle race with The Butterfly Effect on North Shore Maui

Join us on a 3-mile downwind standup paddle run on Maui’s north shore with The Butterfly Effect crew!

I tagged along with my friend JT (a multi-time Ironwoman) at this awesomely fun event for women and girls here on Maui’s north shore last weekend. The Butterfly Effect is a nonprofit run by Tatiana Howard – a pro kite surfer, SUPer and windsurfer. She puts on “Be The Effect” events all around the world as a way to give back to the community and inspire a new generation of water women to grow their skills and confidence and care for the environment. Sadly my GoPro fell off my board just as the race was starting however Tati has a great video here you can enjoy!

Secret Cameraman Shane was there as our support and camera crew. One of Maui’s top pro water and sports photographers – Erik Aeder – shared some his before and on the water shots with us. We met at the end of the race by “coincidence” and shared a ride back to the starting line to get cars. Check out his work – it is beautiful, and book an underwater portrait session with him next time you are on Maui!

Just when I thought I was out of juice near the end of the three miles, I did manage to smoke past two young butterflies. Look closely near the end of our episode for the photo finish! Which of course is nothing considering JT took 5th overall! Mind you, it wasn’t really a race – more of a stroll – and everyone had such a lovely day on the stunningly beautiful water on Maui’s North Shore.

Beach Walk 775 – Kupu Maui, A Beach Full of Gratitude

Beach Walk #775 Kupu Maui, A beach full of gratitude

We camped out last Friday as part of Dania Katz’s Kupu Maui event with Top Chef chefs Lee Anne Wong and Sheldon Simeon. Those folks were busy cooking so several of the overnight guests joined us on Beach Walks to share their gratitude.

This special event started on Friday with a Kupu Maui popup dinner, cooked by Top Chef chefs Lee Anne Wong and Sheldon Simeon, joined by Kupu Maui chef James Simpliciano. It was an elegant sunset affair, with farm to table veggies and fruits, and starring freshly caught (by James!) mahimahi. If YOU ever come to Maui, do time your visit to attend a Kupu Maui event!

We were a bit groggy Saturday morning before breakfast – mostly due to intermittent sleep as our tents were huddled together with dogs and people and a mix of late to bed and early to rise! You’ll see a silvery overcast day – not typical for this area of west Maui – but many of us remarked about how serene it was. No wind blowing things around, no sun glare – very easy actually to just be here now. Please add your comment below or discuss this on Facebook!
