Ricardo Campello in Maui


www.MauiAddicted.com: wear your passion!


Extreme wave sailor and amazing jumper Ricardo Campello unleashes his latest movie.

It has been a incredible winter on Maui, with rumours of waves and wind almost everyday. One sailor to take advantage of the perfect conditions is Ricardo Campello (JP / NeilPryde / MFC).

Campello has been out on the water at every opportunity and he has been pushing himself harder than ever to learn more and more radical moves.

This movie features some of the most explosive moves we have seen all winter, including super-powerful takas of the deepest section of the waves. Perfect backloops of the lip and alongside the amazing action, some monster crashes.

Campello certainly looks fired-up for the 2012 PWA world wave tour.

Bart de Zwart made it from the Big Island to Kauai on June the 26th 2011, before sunset!

He paddled about 300 miles and a little less then 500km on his STARBOARD Open Ocean 14’0″ x 28″ SUP.

The crossing has been solo, non stop and unsupported. 

Amazing performance Bart!! Congrats!

Route to Maui: The Aloha.

www.MauiAddicted.com: wear your passion!



From the book Affordable Paradise by H.Skip Thomsen.

Chapter 1 – The Dream

There’s a magical, special feeling in these Islands of Hawai’i. Those of us who live here call it Aloha. It’s alive and well, and to some it’s so powerful and pervasive that it soon becomes an essential part of life. To many people, this feeling is a huge part of why we are here…but in any event it’s the mystique and power of the Islands that brings them to this extraordinary destination in the first place, and in the end it is what keeps them here forever.

To others, these feelings seem not to exist…

There are few places on Earth that cast this kind of spell on their guests. If you are one of the dreamers, take heart! If it is truly your desire, you can live that dream.





Route to Maui: visas

If you plan to move to the US with your ohana you need a Visa which allow you and the members of your family to legally work there… First of all I need to gather information about US permanent residence or work Visas.

Ok, here it is a starting point: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis.

The Green Card Lottery (aka “Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery”) entry point: http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_1322.html

If you have any good entrepreneurial idea then an eye must definitely be kept on the StartUp Visa Act, S. 3029 (by John Kerry (D-MA) & Richard Lugar (R-IN)) which aims to improve the current EB-5 Visa.

By the way if you are reading this post of mine and feel that the StartUp Visa Act is a good thing for the US, please give your endorsement or support to this proposal by Senators Kerry and Lugar.
