Travel Advice for Hawaii - Honolulu / Kailua

Postby gregy » Tue Jul 23, 2013 1:24 pm

Hey Folks,

I'll be traveling over from Dublin around mid Aug to Honolulu / Kailua area for a couple of days.

Does anyone have any advice on where to try get some kiting in / where to stay?

Is it possible to rent kites etc. over there?

Any help atall would be greatly appreciated,

Cheers,

G

The main Naish shop is in Kailua and while I don't think they rent kites they'll probably demo one. They might rent boards, they definitely rent SUPs. Good vibe in there, very down to earth.

The only option for accommodation in Kailua is guest houses.
