Windsurfing on Maui

Windsurfing Maui

Maui’s northshore draws people from all over the world.  I love the diversity of people and the sports that they enjoy on the northshore.  I was windsurfing yesterday just down the road and was rigging up and talking to a windsurfer from Austria. He was sharing how he love’s Austria, but can’t wait to get back to Maui.  Maui has that effect on many people, and that’s what’s so appealing about owning a condo on Sugar Beach Cove.

Visiting New Zealand

Currently we are on holiday in New Zealand.  New Zealand is an amazing place with beautiful beaches and country side.  I have been really enjoying the local food, which so often is organic and very tasty.

We spent three weeks traveling the north Island, discovering great surf, excellent hiking and the Kiwi’s are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. You will need to adjust to driving on the left side of the road, takes a couple days to get the hang of it. New Zealand doesn’t really have health food stores, because everything is just organic.  The cheese and meat pies were always a good snack. Their white wines grown in the region were so smooth and enjoyable.

Surfing is a big sport in New Zealand.  I been surfing in Ragland, and Gisborne among other spots. Driving on the wrong side of the road is a real experience which takes a while to get use to. If your up for a lot of driving, New Zealand will dazzle you with it’s beauty.

Hugh Surf at Jaws Maui

The end of January on Maui we experienced Hugh surf on Maui’s northshore. On the northshore of Maui the surf was closing out places like Hookipa Beach Park with sets breaking way outside the usual surf line up.  When the surf is this big on Maui, places like Jaws in Haiku, Maui come alive.  Jaws was in the 35ft plus range with clean conditions.  So I took a drive down to Jaws, I love it when it gets big.  Well I wasn’t disappointed the jet ski’s were out towing the surfers into some bomb waves.  The usual crowd was out with Ian Walsh a Maui charger and Laird Hamilton.  They were also filming a movie for Point Break II.

 

The northshore of Maui is home to watermen of all kinds. Windsurfing is really big on Maui with some of the best windsurfers in the world calling Maui home. Another sport that has really taken off is Kiteboarding, if your driving down the coast you will see their kites flying high, and guys ripping up the surf. I been a avid surfer all my life and recently taken up windsurfing.  Maui is the perfect place for wind and surfing sports.

Sailing to Lanai, Leaping Whales, Beautiful Beaches

Setting sail for an adventure aboard the Trilogy Excursions with my wife Ivy and my daughter Meili.  We left the harbor and were welcome by leaping whales, rainbows and a beautiful sail to the island of Lanai.  Morning was offering stormy conditions and rain squalls which made it that much more fun. As we approached the island we waited off shore for the rain to clear, as we pulled into the harbor it was sunny and the wind died down. I always enjoy joining the crew aboard the Trilogy. Captain Brian and the crew treated us to first class service which is a Coon family tradition.  The Coon family is a 3rd generation of Trilogy family serving Maui.

We had a wonderful day on the island of Lanai. First off we hit the beach for some rays and a swim felt really good. Then it was off for a hike to the cliffs.  There are some beautiful bays as we climb down the cliffs to a secluded beach. As time is ticking by its time to catch up with the Trilogy crew and lunch before we head back to Maui. The Trilogy always puts on a fantastic lunch before leading out for some more whale watching and trip home.

Windsurfing at Hooikpa Maui

Windsurfing at Hookipa Maui. This last week the surf was hugh on Maui. Jaws is known around the world for giant waves. Guys like Ian Walsh and Shane Dorian were riding 40 ft waves which is pretty crazy. Honolua Bay was closing out the bay with big surf.  So the day after the waves came down to where they are ride able.  I was working at my home office and got the call from my wife that Hookipa Beach was going off.  Waves were still big and the wind was blowing hard enough. So I headed down to Hookipa in the afternoon and video the action.  I surf at Hookipa but my windsurfing skills are not up to big surf at Hookipa. But the guys out  windsurfing were having a great time.

I hope you enjoy the video of the windsurf action. If your looking for a home or condo on Maui, give me a call.

It’s been a exciting week at Hookipa Maui.  It’s good to see windsurfing competition return to one of the best windsurfing spots in the world, Hookipa Beach Maui. The PWA windsurfing association pulled off a great event.  Being a rookie windsurfer of only three years it was a treat to watch world class windsurfers men and women tearing it up in the surf.  Conditions were perfect with good wind and waves. The over all winner of the JP Aloha Classic was Maui’s Levi Siver with 2nd place going to Bernd Roediger.  Other top Maui finishers included Maui rippers Josh Angulo, Robby Swift, Kevin Pritchard and Graham Ezzy all top notch Maui sailors.

I shot some footage of day three which was just amazing conditions.  If you ever have a chance come down and watch the action it is world class.  Our winter season is just heating up.

On the north shore of Oahu the HIC surfing competition is going on at Sunset beach.  We have a couple Maui surfers making it through the early rounds Ian Walsh tearing it up with some amazing power surfing and Ian Gentil talented young surfer from Hookipa. Moving into November the Triple Crown of Surfing will soon be getting under way with three events on Oahu’s northshore.  The last event at Pipeline will be the deciding factor for the title for WCT world champion between Kelly Slater and Mick Fanning.

So lots happening in Hawaii, get out and enjoy the surf and be safe.  If your looking at buying a home in Maui give me a call. Maui been my home for 41 years, I love to surf and windsurf on Maui’s northshore so let me know if you have any questions that I can help you with.
