Euro Beach at Sprecklesville was the best intermediate windsurfing location on Maui.
Now it is ruined.
I'm going to post some of the pics I took there over the last 20 years as a way of honoring that which is lost.
Others are welcome to share their memories.
One more stop on a long, strange trip.

Mowana's Flag 2003.
Things got a bit tense sometimes that summer.

It took some velocity to get a rental car through the sand trap.
That's why rental cars are also known as all terrain vehicles.

A very small group of mostly unknown locals kept the place pretty well organized

...nice pics! Thanks for sharing.
But what's the story?

It's been always the windiest spot on the NS.
I used to rent right on the beach, or a bit upwind (Sugar Cove?), but haven't been back in years. Last times sailing out of Camp One.

Is it "only" erosion, or has access become a problem?

It wouldn't have been Sprecks without the Pros dropping by to show the rest of us how inadequate we are.
