Dude, Maui has alot of transients. Lots of people go there and find work illegaly for cash without too much trouble but its gonna suck like dishes for 6 bucks an hour etc. There are notice boards all over the place in Paia with ads for housing and cars and employment. Also the MAui Bulletin ( maybee on the net). I am not sure what its like now, I've been gone for 2 years. One of the hostels is Bananna Bugalow in Pukalani. I am pretty sure they have a web site. Also another place that I like more is Jeromes in PAia next to the general store. Don't expect to find much work there dude and take enough money to buy a car and get by for the whole time you are there or you might not have such a positive time. Overall MAui is a great place to go, a little hard to get ahead if you are not too legal. Good luck
Dude there are like quite a few jobs for non legal stuff so if you are lucky you'll get a job but that was 2 years ago and I have heard rumor that the job scene is miserable now after Sep 11. So maybee you find work maybee not. But I would hate to see you expect it and find nothing. Pipeline is in Oahu on the north shore. A taxi from the airport to PAia is around 24.00 for a 8 minute ride. If you stay in Pukalani it is a 30.00 taxi to the beach where you will kite. If you stay in Paia its a long walk ( 1/2 hour at least to the nearest place to kite). Without a car you will be suffering big time. There are no buses or trains. Hono;ulu is a big city 2 or 3 million pop in the city or something like that I think. In MAui the biggest city is Kahului. Pop less than 50,000. You cannot kite in Paia because of rules on the beach. The best place to kite are pretty far from Paia if you don't have a car. Good luck.
