What tips do you have for riders visiting want to shred the heavy waves Maui is so famous for?
Be respectful, know your limits and don’t be afraid to ask for advise on where to go and what to watch out for. Kiters here, like most places in the world, are very friendly and always willing to help.
..and thos visiting Maui for the first time?
You are not allowed to kite or windsurf before 11am on Maui. Mornings are reserved for surfers and fishermen and it’s usually not windy before 11am anyway. So take your time and enjoy the calm mornings to go surfing, hiking or sight-seeing and then kite all afternoon!
What’s your ultimate session and gear setup?
My ultimate day would be a huge straight north swell - the bigger the better!- and solid NE trade winds. On those days you can find me on the outer reefs with a 7m Neo and 5’11” Pro Session doing big turns and getting barrelled.
Sounds like the dream and the only place to be creating the slickest range for our Duotone riders. Stay tuned for more news as Sky finalises the 2020 line and what you can expect when it launches.
