2013 Naish Kites Torch
Before you view these photos There are a few things I'd like to let you know about my experience with Naish International . Most of the guys out here are way cool and I have nothing bad to say about them, but I did meet one of the most unprofessional general managers I've ever met in my life; Andy Church!!! Whom, you can thank for the pleasure of viewing these photos, remember a shitty attitude gets you nowhere!!!!
It all started with a solid weekend of strong winds, so I headed to Waiehu for a session and on the way home I saw some newer looking Naish kites in the harbor. I started shooting and was approached by some girl asking me to not use my photos on any website or any of the footage I shot from that day. I kinda laughed as she walked away thinking to myself, "wait you guys are doing a private photo shoot at a public beach".... Lol!!! Smart!!! All I know is I was going to do what I always do. Which is simple, I spread the kite life on Maui to the rest of the world to help promote the kite scene. For some company that thinks they own the island to approach me and ask me for a "favor" was kind of funny.
With that said I contacted Naish to see if they were interested in any of my photos. I talked to a couple of guys there and landed a meeting with Andy Church, Naish's General Manager. I was stoked, I took off work early and headed over to Haiku to meet up at the Naish Center with my external hard drive full of videos and photos. For half an hour they discussed how I was not to post these anywhere and they were not interested in any of them. From there Andy had the nerve to belittle me, insult me and claim I was trying to extort/blackmail money from him. After being talked to like that I was over it. I went to leave as Andy grabbed the hard drive and said "your leaving but not with your hard drive" I laughed at him and asked if he thought that was how general managers act? He then again claimed that I was "trying to extort money from them" and "I was not leaving with what I walked into the office with".
What a Fuc*ing Goof that guy is. I had my iPhone recording the whole time, man I love that Voice Memos app!!!!! And of course I didn't go in there with the only copies I had of the photos. What does he think I'm as dumb as him? Video coming soon!!
Now you can enjoy
With all the strong winds, the debris from the Japanese tsunami is making it's way onto the shores of Maui.
