Spring/Summer Transition

Maui seems to be switching gears toward summer conditions.  I am sure we still have a few North Swells to come, but the trend is seemingly less waves and more wind.  It’s good because you get more days on the water, and bad because wavesailing is what  I like to do most.  Fortunately there are plenty of jumping spots on Maui, and with plenty of wind, you can go very high off of small ramps.

Today was one where the waves were inconsistent, but still fun.  I sailed a few North Shore spots and scored some decent waveriding and jumping.  Ho’okipa was the best spot with gusty 4.2 wind and steep head high waves to be ridden.
