Downwind Surfing Article from Suzie Cooney

Here's a great very informative blog post from Maui's Suzie Cooney.  I added my 2 cents in comments by adding a few more much needed items.

It’s been an amazing downwind Maliko run pre-winter season this past October through November here on Maui; with stronger than usual trades consistently pushing through, coupled with massive surf and wind swells.
