Maiden voyage easier than expected

Kihei’s Brad and Nancy Betts let a shore break wave pass under their kayak during the maiden voyage in their recently purchased craft. The couple said they were learning the ropes and hope to be ready for Maui’s next whale season when the humpbacks return to the island’s nearshore waters. “I thought it was great,” Brad Betts said after beaching Saturday. “It was easier than I expected,” Nancy Betts said.
