Aloha, Steven Nickens Pineapple Cottage Haiku Maui Vacation Rental Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Cell: 808-280-2208Spring 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. If you’re looking at visiting Maui for some windsurf time, you might be looking for a place to stay for a while, and kick back and enjoy Northshore life.

We put a lot of love into our cottage and it has been well received. You can reach us on vrbo, or call us direct 808-280-2208. We are a licensed vacation rental with the county of Maui.
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.

Aloha, SteveIt 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.
