Bill Boyum, a good friend here on Maui, shot this video from the bluff above Ho’okipa and from the water. Bill is a true Xtreme Geezer, braving this heavy surf in fins and swim goggles with a waterproof handheld camera. Bill admits to 50+. Great footage.
Chuck Patterson–the big guy in these shots–probably doesn’t consider himself an Xtreme Geezer yet, but at 42 he certainly isn’t a kid. Unlike Connor Baxter, the skinny kid hanging out with him. I think Connor is still 16, though he might have snuck into 17 when I wasn’t watching.
If you have a fast internet connection be sure to click on the HD button and pop the video to full screen. This video is fed from a new service I’m using that lets us store full HD resolution video segments. Because of the large file size it generally works best to hit the pause button and let the buffer fill a bit before you start watching.
