Windsurfing and the Walking Wounded
Last April, Warren, the kids and I went to Kaua’i for a much-needed vacation and came back to the real world rested and invigorated. One of our highlights of the trip was learning to windsurf on Anini Beach which is located on the north side of the island. Celeste Harvel was our to-die-for instructor. She’s been windsurfing for 17 years and knows how to get you going in a matter of minutes. Plus Anini Beach is TO DIE FOR. Calm and protected from high surf, it’s a private oasis of clear turquoise water. And don’t think you’re too old or too fat to be able to windsurf, it takes minimum brain function, coordination and strength to learn. Her 3-hour class was the best $100 I’ve spent in a long time.
Windsurfing opened up a new window in my heart and my dream, which is to do it every morning. To thank Celeste, I gave her a jar of Elixer Arnica Rub figuring she might try it out since she is so active. Eight months later, on Thanksgiving Day, I got a call from Celeste who wanted to order a jar for herself and one for her daughter. Seems that when Celeste was 19 years old she broke her ankle rock climbing and since then she always has been in pain. But as she says “…with Elixer my pain goes immediately away, and I can go out and party”.
I don’t think I could have said it any better. I can’t wait until we go back to Kaua’i for some more windsurfing classes and especially to see Celeste, my number one fan. Mahalo for your kind testimonial, Celeste and have a wonderful holiday.
