Kite Boarding on Maui

Spring time on Maui’s Northshore, brings the trade winds, and windsurfing on Maui Northshore. Winds have been pretty strong the last couple days. I was heading down to Kanaha from Haiku, to get an afternoon windsurfing session. But as I was driving by Hookup Beach Park the waves were big and the wind was crazy strong with just two guys out so I decided to work in my garden and wait for a cleaner day.

The wind report is looking like we might have a good week of windsurfing. Kiters are also all fired up to finally get some good kiteboarding sessions. Spring time brings windsurfer and kiters to Maui. Maui is the most consistent place on the planet, usually the trade winds pick up around 10 or 11 o’clock.
What’s amazing about Maui is how people come to Maui from all over the world. We still have plenty of good surf, trade winds filling in are a big bonus. Many windsurfers live part time on Maui, finishing up the winter season of skiing, trading in their mountain equipment for warm water and surf.

Last Big Swell of the Year Maui

We just had our last giant swell of the year as far as I am guessing.

Surfing at Jaws Maui

The day of the Eddie big wave event on Oahu’s northshore brought huge surf to the islands.  Maui was not denied, and we had huge surf on the northshores.  Jaws Maui, which is located on the northshore of Haiku, just down the way from Pineapple Cottage our B&B, experienced huge surf.  I drove down with my son Micah to get a few pictures, I was not disappointed.

The cliff was lined with people anxious to get view of the few brave watermen that were out charging the waves.  Waves had some 50ft faces, and we experienced some great rides.  So now we are slowly approaching spring.  The tradewinds are slowly filling in with good wind for windsurfing on Maui.  So for me it’s a relief from the giant surf to be able to get out and surf at Hookipa.

What’s so cool about Maui, is that there is so much to do for beach lovers, surfers, kiters, windsufers, and standup paddlers.  As conditions change, people change what kind of equipment they ride in the surf.  Myself I am an old surfer, that took up windsurfing on Maui in the last five years.

Many people staying at Pineapple Cottage find it to be an easy hour and half drive to Hana for the day. A drive up country to Makawao Town is just 10 minutes away.  Make sure you try Kokoda’s famous donuts, or visit Polis Mexican Restaurant, food is excellent and they always have videos of Jaws, or windsurfing on Maui’s Northshore.

Huge Surf Arriving on Maui’s Northshore

Haiku Maui Vacation Rental

On the northshore of Maui we are expecting the biggest swell of the year.  Waves could easily reach 50 ft and bigger with the current wave forecast for Maui.  Local breaks that Maui windsurfers and surfers like for windsurfing on Maui, and surfing, will have to settle for viewing from the shore line today.  The wind conditions are perfect, places like Jaws on Maui’s northshore, will be giant.  Most likely surfers will be towing into the waves on jetski’s being that the surf is to large for paddling into these giant waves.

This Wednesday they were going to  hold the Eddie on the north shore of Oahu, but it was canceled.  This is a prestigious big wave event held at Waimea Bay.  Jaws was the place for riding big waves on Maui.  Swell did arrive, giving the boys some great action. For me the waves are to big, no wind to windsurf on Maui, so I guess I will finish working on my outdoor shower, it’s a lot tamer. than 50 ft waves.  Today is just a stunning day, still winds and the sun is out shinning.

The northshore of Maui is a beautiful place to visit.  We have stunning beaches like Baldwin Beach and Hookipa Beach Park.  Paia Town, is an old plantation town that has been reborn and discovered by windsurfers, kiters, surfers, beach lovers for it’s great places to eat, cool shops, and pretty much a rad town.  People drive from all over the island to visit the northshore.

Pineapple Cottage Beginning

Well this is my first Pineapple Cottage blog on our Haiku Vacation rental.

Maui vacation rentals

Maui vacation rentals

It has been a random journey in 2015 seeing our vacation rental come into focus.  During the middle of 2015 someone suggested about our cottage as a B&B.  It was like a light went on in my head. So the process began.  My wife Ivy and I started the paper work applying for permits.  It was also time to remodel our 12 year old cottage.  So the work began in good faith that we were going to get our permits.  It took four and half months to remodel, working 24/7 on our cottage.

This is my wife  Ivy and I, she is one of the hardest working girls I know.  She can work just as hard as I can, sometimes she is carrying the ball over the goal line.  It was a total remodel, I wasn’t up for gutting the bathroom, but my good friend Roger from Switzerland was helping me and just charged the bathroom with a sludge hammer. On the ladder is his wife Sandra who was a big help also, love these guys. They are currently in Western Australia windsurfing.

The middle of December we received our permits from the county.  Two days before Christmas we were officially finished. We walk out the door as our first quest from Switzerland check in.  Our first guest love our place, that it was private and quiet.  The also loved all the upgrades, everything was brand new.
