Surf Ulua in Mexico


Sal Smario sent me these photos from Punta Mita, Nayarit, Mexico.  This is a three seat stretched Ulua rigged for fun in the surf.  Notice the larger floatier ama with a flat bottom and plenty of rocker up forward, developed in Hawaii just for surfing.  For speed under sail a wave piercing ama shape is the way to go, unless you plan to sail down very steep waves a lot.
Sal plans to build two more Uluas.

Looks like a beautiful outrigger. I see you said he plans on building two more. I am in Puerto Vallarta and would possibly be interested in one, do you know any details re: cost or contact info? Thanks Al(Beachbum74@hotmail.com)
