Any suggestions of places to wing on the big island in Kona? And or anywhere that rents the gear? Probably a longshot but thought I'd ask since there are shops in Maui in the Gorge that rent foil gear so thought there might be in Kona as well if I'm really lucky. Or perhaps by then I'll have bought my own gear...

You'll have to get really lucky. I just took a short trip to Kohala Coast near Kona from Maui. I asked the local Maui wingsurf group and all I got was "not worth it". Trades are sketchy in the winter, hit or miss. Additionally they are much lighter on BI, and rentals are non-existent. During the time I was there, we had no sailable weather. I was told that South Point offers some windsport opportunities, but it's a loooong drive (I live on Maui so long for me, maybe not for you). In addition it's roll your own, if you have no gear no rentals there.

I have been there at Anaeho'omalu bay a few years back, wishing I had gear (windsurfing) as there were kiters and windsurfers out (but no rentals, sigh) and it looked to be about 5.0 for me. So if you can get your hands on some equipment and the trades cooperate...

Next time, come to Maui!
