A dream task – a house for friends in Hawaii! Slovene-Croatian windsurfing sail designer Robert Stroj is closely related to these exotic islands and so decided to build home for his four-member family there. The island of Maui is, among other things, recognized as a paradise for surfers; it is four times bigger than the island of Krk and is situated to the north-west of the principal island Hawaii. Robert has lived here twelve years already. The search for an ideal plot for his own home lasted long, as well as negotiations with the owner to sell this part of paradise.
