The north shore of Maui is unique compared to the rest of the island of Maui.  First off Windsurfing has been a huge sport since the early 80's.  People have been traveling around the world to come enjoy the steady tradewinds and surf that Maui's north shore enjoys.  My self I been surfing at Hookipa Beach park since the early 70's. Later in my life on Maui I took up windsurfing and have been really enjoying the sport.

Makena Beach

Makena Beach

As we began our tour of the island we headed out to Wailea Makena area. Wailea Resort has some incredible hotels.  The Andaz Hotel is Wailea's newest Wailea oceanfront hotel.  If you happen to be in the lobby of the Andaz Hotel and you look out over the pool.  The Royal Palms in the pool area are from our property.  We had twelve Royal Palms removed from our property to there new home in the Andaz.   Another popular hotel is the Grand Wailea Hotel.  The Grand Wailea has great pools and slides, lots of fun for the whole family.  Then there is the Fours Season's Hotel in Wailea Maui.  The Four Season's Hotel offers luxury and impeccable service.   Not to mention a beautiful setting.  While many people love the resorts.  There are island visitors looking to experience life  away from the crowds and resorts to experience Maui as the locals do.

  So next we headed out to Makena Beach, which is one of Maui's most stunning beaches.  Makena offers incredible beaches, to raw beautiful coast lines.  Yesterday we were up in Ulupalakua Ranch looking down on Makena coast line.  Below is my wife Ivy taking in the views.  La Perouse is bay is the end of the road, this is actually a surf spot, but not for beginners.  It can get really big and dangerous.  Our son loves to surf La Perouse Bay when the waves are good.  There is a natural raw beauty along the Makena coast line that is majestic.  As we were driving back we came upon a small friendly herd of wild goats.   Maui has so much to offer.  From our Maui vacation rental on Maui's northshore in Haiku, you have the whole island at your finger tips.  Pineapple Cottage is a true Hawaiian experience, tropical getaway with luxurious comfort.  Next we will be exploring Hana Maui, which is the complete opposite direction.

Haiku Maui vacation rental

Haiku Maui vacation rental

When traveling to Maui many travelers prefer the country life in Haiku Maui.  Pineapple Cottage vacation rental in Haiku Maui is a sweet getaway.  We are headed into June season with beautiful weather.  Memorial weekend offered still winds, and playful surf all over the island.  This time of year people that love to get out in the ocean change water sports.  There is the serious crew of downwinders that are waiting for the trade winds to blow so that they can launch from Maliko Bay for a coast run to Kanaha Beach by Maui’s airport in Kahului.   I usually end up doing a few runs over the summer on Maui’s Northshore, but I like to mix it up.

On Maui's northshore we have a vacation rental, Pinepple Cottage that is a perfect getway from the crowds.  Our B&B is a two bedroom cottage standing on 2.5 acres, very peaceful and private.  We are close to northshore beaches and places like Haiku town for shopping and great places to eat.  June is here and Maui is a giant playground. in the summer on Maui the south shore comes alive.  Maui’s summer beaches bring out families and friends hanging out on the beach, trucks loaded with surfboards, tents, coolers and sunscreen.  I like to mix my summer surfing up with longboards, short boards and standup boards, so the truck is loaded down.  My wife has taken up standup board surfing, she loves playing in the surf on small days.

                                    Summer time also brings in windsurfers from all over the world.  I have taken up windsurfing over the last five years and really enjoy it.  I been a surfer all my life, and I use to sail cats, so a transition to windsurfing was very natural for me.

Paia Maui is the center of surf and windsurfing world.  Paia is a gathering place with great places to eat and finish off the day with your friends. Summer time I usually windsurf at Kanaha Beach on Maui’s Northshore.  It’s always nice meeting old faces that return to Maui every year to windsurf on Maui’s Northshore.  Kitesurfing is also very big on Maui.  You can take lessons to windsurf and kitesurf at many of Maui’s surf centers like Hi-Tech Maui and Action Sports in Kahului.

Haiku is a very special place to many people that call it home, and to the traveler looking for a lifestyle experience other than condo or hotel has to offer.  Many people staying at our Maui vacation rental in the 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.  In fact, the owner Tim is always down at Kanaha windsurfing in the afternoon.

Windsurfing Maui Northshore Kiteboarding Maui

Kiteboarding on Maui

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.
WIndsurfing on Maui

WIndsurfing on Maui

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

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.      
Surfing on Maui

Surfing on Maui

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.

Huge Surf Arriving on Maui’s Northshore

Haiku Maui Vacation Rental

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.
Windsurfing Maui

Windsurfing Maui

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. So if your looking at getting away from the hotel experience, check out Pineapple Cottage in Haiku Maui.  Our two bedroom Pineapple Cottage has been a hit since we started business in December 2015.  If your looking for a vacation rental in Haiku, you will appreciate the newly remodeled cottage with new granite counter tops, wood floors and brand new bathroom with walk n shower.  Set on two and half acres, over looking a gulch for privacy.  Our guest are loving their island getaway.
