The consistent tradewinds and wide variety of conditions are world renowned. From slalom sailing in Kihei to wave sailing on the North Shore, Maui has it all! In summer, the North Shore beaches have flat water inside the reef, swells outside. The rest of the year, waves on the reef, chop inside. Kihei has great slalom sailing year round. Water is warm, although some days you may want a shorty wetsuit.
