Windsurfing, Kitesurfing on Maui’s Northshore

Kitesurfing on Maui

Kitesurfing on Maui

Maui is known around the world as the windsurfing capital of the world. It is home to the Aloha Classic windsurfing event at Hookipa Beach Park, which last year was a huge success. The center of the windsurfing and kiting world has to be Paia Maui.  Paia is such a cool town, with visitors arriving from all over the world.  On any given day you have world class windsurfers and Kiteboarders enjoying the lifestyle that Paia has to offer.  Paia Maui is a melting pot of talented watermen, artist and beach lovers from different parts of the globe.

Windsurfing on Maui

Windsurfing and Kiting are two of Maui’s Northshore wind sports that are driven by the trade winds in Hawaii.  After a rather light winter of winds, it seems that we are looking at some excellent conditions. I keep hearing that we are looking at a La Nina weather pattern this spring and summer.  That means it should bring strong winds for windsurfing and kite surfing on Maui.

Sunday was a great day for windsurfing at Kanaha Maui.  The windsurfing report didn’t show any sign of winds. I live in Haiku, just past Hookipa Beach Park.  I was working on my vacation rental with my wife and I noticed that the winds were getting to be pretty steady.  So without hesitation, I loaded up my windsurfing gear and headed to Kanaha.  To my surprise, the wind filled in and it was sunny, with steady winds.  It was a great day on the water.

Steve & Swiss clients and good friend Sandra

One of the reasons I moved to Maui 43 years ago was the lifestyle.  I been surfing at Hookipa Beach for 43 years, and the last five years have taken up windsurfing.  Being a Realtor on Maui for 21 years, it allows me time to get in the water depending on conditions, and plenty of time to take care of my clients and friends real estate needs on Maui.  Maui is a unique place to call home.  Trip Advisor just named Maui the best island destination in the world.  Okay I love to travel with my wife, to exotic places to surf and explore, but I have to say waking up in Haiku on Maui’s Northshore never gets old.

So if you’re looking at buying a home on Maui’s Northshore, keep me in mind for all your real estate needs.  My real estate website is a very informative source of information if you’re looking at buying real estate on Maui. If you are looking at visiting Maui’s Northshore for a windsurfing getaway?  Visit my website for our vacation rental in Haiku, Pineapple Cottage Vacation rental on our 2.5 acres’ parcel. Recently remodeled two-bedroom cottage in Haiku, very private, well appointed, close to Hookipa Beach and Paia Town.

Haiku Maui Vacation Rental

My wife and I start a new vacation rental in Haiku Maui. Pineapple Cottage in Haiku Maui, started in business December 2015.  We spent four months remodeling our cottage. Our first clients from Switzerland check in as we were moving our tools out.  Pineapple Cottage is located on 2.5 acres of lush, tropical Haiku land.  We first started building our main home 26 years ago.  Lots of love and hard work, to create something that my wife and I have always dreamed of.  Our kids are grown up and have their own kids.  So it made sense to us get permitted with the county and start our new enterprise.

Pineapple Cottage is a labor of love, we tried to make it as comfortable as we would like with our own home. We installed new wood floors, granite counter tops and demo and installed a new walk in shower.  My wife Ivy, is an artist, so her personnel touches are reflected through out the unit. Our first guest where visiting from Switzerland.  They stayed for 19 nights and loved staying at our cottage.

Living off the land has always been a dream of ours. We planted all the things that we love, from an orchard with citrus, avacado’s, breadfruit trees, bananas, papaya’s, tropical palms and flowers.  I also have an organic garden for fresh veggies.  Haiku is a special place, 20 minutes from airport, 10 minutes to Hookipa Beach Park for a morning surf session. Hookipa is also a world class Maui windsurfing spot.  They hold the Aloha Classic there every year.
