PostForum: Windsurfing Discussion   Posted: Sun Jan 26, 2014 2:51 pm   Subject: Maui Gear rental
I would suggest you pick the place that rents gear closest to what you currently sail. I've been going to Maui pretty much annually for about 25 years (I'm on Maui now) and have rented mostly from HT ...

We walked down to Jaws on Wed and Thurs, and watched the circus. On Wed, they were only towing in, and they were apparently filming a sequel or remake of "Point Break" and Laird was out for ...

I'd like to address the falling issue a bit more. I guess it's an individual thing, but I'm working on tacking my 80l wave board and almost never sail out of them. Thing is though, I'm almost always ...

That looked like about a 6.5 and very low wind. I wonder if this thing works way below normal planing speeds, if so, could be a fun piece of gear to keep around. But, the idea has been around since ...

For me, bad judgement on a big day in the early '90s on lake Ontario when the wind died. Instead of swimming back to the beach I decided to swim over to the large boulders that make up the edge of th ...

I've been doing the trip to Maui nearly every year since 1987, sometimes twice. I pretty much always go late Jan or mid/late Nov. I have (somewhat fond) memories of playing volleyball at Hookipa wit ...

Just because it will only push a board to 10mph, does not mean it wouldn't help in early planing. Extra push is extra push. Theoretically you should be able to plane in lighter winds as the sail an ...

That's the conclusion I came to as well. Swim Zone B. It doesn't mean we won't be able to access the break, we just have a smaller launch. It really doesn't look all that bad. FWIW I found the ori ...

So I just did some measurements, and either the statement or the map with swim zones drawn on it is wrong. The entire beach in Kanaha Beach Park is 3000 feet long. So either the entire beach will be ...

I'm heading there in Feb,so I'm in a similar state, but I know I can sail elsewhere if I have to. From what I've seen on the other thread, the zones we're talking about are spaced along the beach, so ...
