Maui

Maui, situated in the state of Hawaii, is the 17th largest island in the USA. Just like the Demi-god from which the island gathers its name, it flies under the radar, yet holds in some very powerful magic.

Maui is a beautifully diverse island. Though it takes only 20 minutes to travel from one side of the island to another, it is comprised of an unusually diverse number of climates and landscapes. From the sea, to low lying, luscious valleys, black sand beaches and waterfalls, to the soaring heights of 8 Km high, dormant volcanoes, Maui is full of surprises and endless possibilities.

Surrounded by reef, Maui is hot spot for marine activity. As well as being one of the world's most popular snorkeling and diving destinations, through the winter, the island serves as a popular spot to witness the migration and breeding of the endangered Humpback Whale. As well as providing a haven for marine life, and a natural snorkeling and diving wonderland, the reef makes some awesome waves that pump in small to large swells. Not only are there copious reef breaks, but, also, there are many beach breaks, stretching all around the island, that cater from the beginners to the advanced.

Though sometimes it can be affected by the north-east trade winds hope need not be lost. Maui, being one of the world's best kite and wind surfing destinations, there are plenty of opportunities for you to learn a new sport, and rip it up no matter what the weather.

Weather in Maui

April - October
November - March

Maui lies amongst the tropics. So while there is a variance of climates on the island, it typically experiences just the two distinct seasons: wet and dry.

The summer season (wet season) lasts from about April to October. The water during this time is at its warmest. Rainfall during this season is more frequent. Although rainfall come come in heavy down pours, it is more likely to come in frequent, but light and short bursts. The swell during this season can be small, creating ideal conditions for beginners. Make sure to bring a long board so as to take advantage of any swell you are presented with.

The winter season (dry season) spans from approximately November to March. Though the water is warm all year around the wind can slightly chillier in this season. It is, however, not a problem that can't be fixed by a springy or a vest. During this season, the Hawaiian Islands can encounter some huge, consistent swells. Due to the prime surfing weather there are plenty of professional surfing competitions that travel through at this time. If 10ft sets aren't your thing, sit back and be blown away by the world's best.
