Catching some air

First photo: Brian Jacobson of Kihei prepares to go kitesurfing Thursday afternoon at Kalepolepo Beach in Kihei. He said he was planning to troll for fish but was concerned the winds may have been too strong and push him too fast. He said he tows a lure tied to a line attached to his waist. “I ride out until something bites and hopefully, I have dinner,” he said. Jacobson said he usually catches papio. Winds were from the northeast around 25 mph with gusts up to 30 mph in the afternoon. It’s also been hot the last few days, in the 90s. Wednesday’s high was 91 degrees; it was 94 degrees on Tuesday.

Second photo: Jacobson warms up with a jump before giving fishing a try Thursday in Kihei.
