Ulua getting Slammed
From Dennis Bullen on the Manukau Harbor in New Zealand:
"Found some photographs hiding in the waterproof camera. Here we are (the Cabin Boy and Der Kapitian) beating our way up the Manukau Harbour, its windy rough and a bit wild. After a while we saw three big ones with nasty white caps heading our way.These shots show the waka sliding down the back of the first wave, the second wave hitting. We had plenty of good wind and speed up, the wave crashed over, the ama just disappeared then the canoe; we flew out and slammed down then slipped over the next one and sailed on. The perfect day."
