Been windsurfing 15 yrs, kiting for 8 or so....I weigh 165, I guess Id say Im intermediate..? Anyway, I'll bring a JimmyLewis Twin tip. We ride 14M's 75% of the time at our local spots, 10M's 20% of the time, and a few times a year, (a Major Low Pressure system ) I wish I had an 8. I rode a 6 in Hatteras once...Was hoping to ride one again in Maui - Time will tell...I guess I'll bring the big stuff, and hopefully that will make it windy and I'll have to rent/demo/ buy a 6 or 8! Thanks
I use ikitesurf. if it is showing blue then there probably wont be any wind. But you do need to watch the current wind you can see it trending up counter to the forecast. iKite shows about 3-4 mph less than what actually shows. Watch kihei too. I had 2 sessions when kihei and kanaha werent forecasted to blow, but kihei did.
Thursday the 23rd looks to be the first good day of wind.
east is kind of crappy at kanaha because of the wind shadow. I was in maui in early april and got about 6/14 days in (not very good).
