Cruser Putnam: Opening Day – Giant Ho’okipa

In years past I’ve had the good fortunate to meet and chat with Cruser. He’s also a hang glider pilot and enthusiast.

Cruser Putnam: Opening Day- Giant Ho’okipa from Maui Mini Movie on Vimeo.

MauiEMC Presents: Cruser Putnam kitesurfs giant Ho'okipa on the first big swell of the new winter. Being one of the only guys out in 8 to 12 ft Hawaiian, he shows us how to rip the giant surf on his backhand. Always out there on the big days, Cruser slashes the blue walls. Opening day 2014, started out big and mean, just the way Cruser likes it. Aloha and Good Luck.
