It has taken us some time, more than we expected, but with a title referring to a soap opera we could have known there’d be some drama involved… Blood, sweat, tears and pride: we present you Kauli Seadi in Novela das 8.
We kick-off the series with Maui, the place Kauli describes as his ‘school of life’: ‘Maui is definitely one of the Mecca’s of windsurfing. It’s the place where all pro sailors meet to do photo shoots and train, and I was super happy to be able to go there in 1999 for the first time and sail the famous Hawaiian waves over the corals and caves! My first years I was staying there for over four months at a time to practice, and it helped me a lot because the level of the other sailors was pushing me so much. Maui was my school of life, it was where I learnt to really live on my own, do the things that I never do at home, stuff like cooking, shop for food, clean the house, wash my clothes… So much work man! Luckily I had 30 t-shirts so I could do the washing only once a month haha. I haven’t told this to anyone before, but I learnt to make pasta in Maui. It was what me and Charles Boggis ate every day for four months, pasta with Prego sauce, the only recipe we knew!’
