Westside Opihi

Finding the cure in front traction with Maui's Braiden Maither

When was the last time you ever saw someone surfing in Maui with a frontpad? Never? What about hearing The Cure set to the scene of tropical delights? Good, right? Braiden Maither’s latest edit, “Westside Opihi,” is named after a Hawaiian shellfish, but one look at Braiden’s raw surfing here is clearly worth celebrating beyond the frontpad, the music, and rockfish comparison.
