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. So if Maui might be your island destination for this summer, keep in mind our vacation rental on Maui’s Northshore, very cozy two-bedroom cottage on two acres. Pineapple Cottage is loved by our guest for a quiet, peaceful getaway, stream running in the gulch, tropical flowers and fruit trees. Very different experience than condo living in Kihei. Pineapple Cottage is situated in an ideal location in Haiku, minutes away from Haiku town, and 15 minutes to Paia Town. Hookipa and Baldwin Beach are close by for windsurfing and surfing, or just a morning walk on the beach. For more information on Pineapple cottage Haiku Maui check out our website.

Windsurfing Spring Season On Maui Begins with Strong Winds 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. On any given Sunday there is a pretty good crowd if the conditions show the slightest bit of wind. There were just a few of the locals full of smiles, having ignored the wind reports online. Margie, a long time windsurfer at Kanaha, usually does a morning post on Facebook posted positive report on the conditions, but still people missed it! We were all pretty happy! I rigged a 5-0 and headed out to enjoy the day. Needless to say, everyone was really stoked with the conditions, steady winds, 20 to 25 mph. I heard hoots from Margie and she was flying by me. Today we had a little different conditions. Winds were blowing 25 to 35 mph. As I walked up to check the conditions, people windsurfing were getting out of the water because of the strong winds. There are some fearless windsurfing veterans that have been sailing Maui for over 30 years. I was watching as some of the veteran ladies, like Margie & Franny headed out to tackle the strong conditions. I thought if these ladies are going out, I might as well join them. Okay, from the moment I set foot in the water it was go. Powered up and flying across the water, it was exhilarating. Okay, I got slammed a couple times and thought, “Well, that was fun, but I better call it a day!” I have only been sailing for 5 years, though I’ve been surfing for 45 years. It’s been a great diversion.ion There’s a saying: “Lucky we live Maui”. Tomorrow I will be spending the day in the office (I sell real estate), then back to Kanaha for maybe another windsurf session. Many visitors come to Maui to windsurf and kiteboard at Maui’s famous destinations like Hookup Beach Park and Sprecklesville, Maui. If you’re looking for vacation rental accommodations on Maui’s Northshore, you might consider Pineapple Cottage, our sweet little 2 bedroom vacation rental. We are located just ten minutes past Hookipa Beach Park, the first turn off to Haiku (Haiku Road) as you come out of Maliko Gulch. It’s a cottage on a 2 acres, very private and well appointed. Keep us in mind for your next Maui windsurf vacation, happy sailing!

Spring Time on Maui’s Northshore As winter comes to an end on Maui, you start to notice that spring is approaching. One of the early signs is the shower trees are starting to blossom all over the island. I love the pink shower trees with their vibrant colors. One thing that I do every spring is drive up to Kula Maui to take pictures of the Jacaranda trees flowering, they are just stunning. Starting at the King K high school, all the way out to Ulupalakua Ranch you will be amazed at the sight of these beautiful trees. Just last year I planted a Jacaranda tree in my yard I love them so much. I do have Hong Kong Orchids trees, and a couple shower tress, love the display of blossoms going off. Another sign of spring is the trade winds returning after a poor showing this winter. Windsurfers and kite boarders love spring on Maui. There are still waves and wind on the Northshore of Maui. You also have all the windsurf companies showing up to take photos of all the new product lines for water sports. We just had the DaKine marketing team staying at our Pineapple Cottage vacation rental in Haiku. They brought in a team to work with local watermen and women to display their products on-line and to feature in magazines. For me it’s a shift from surfing all winter, to getting my windsurf gear out and enjoying the water when I am not selling real estate on Maui. Spring is also a changing of the guard, where the winter snowbirds return to their summer homes, and people trade in their ski equipment for kiteboards and windsurfing gear. It’s like the Geese returning to their summer grounds. So if you’re looking at visiting Maui, you might keep Pineapple Cottage vacation rental in Haiku Maui as a tropical getaway for Spring time. The Northshore of Maui is a very cool place, with lots of interesting things to do. Paia Maui is such an international destination with people from all over the world. Upcountry Maui has Makawao town with cool boutiques stores and great eateries. So this spring looking for Maui vacation rentals on Maui’s Northshore, consider Pineapple Cottage vacation rental in Haiku Maui. Aloha, Steve & Ivy

The trade winds are starting to pick up, hopefully we will have a lots of sailing time this spring heading into summer. Kite boarding on Maui has become really popular. I been windsurfing for five years on Maui, and have been tempted to try kiteboarding. On the light wind days’ kite boarding really is the way to go.

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.

We just had our last giant swell of the year as far as I am guessing. nickensmaui.com.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. When I am not selling real estate with Island Sotheby's International Realty, or helping my wife getting our vacation rental in Haiku ready for our next guest. Okay and doing yard work, I am out surfing at Hookipa, or windsurfing at Kahana Maui. Today is one of those days I am running off for a windsurfing session.
