Mauritius is an excellent alternative: better access to a wider range of wave options (little reef, Manawa, One Eye), safer launch options (than at Lanes for example) and more reliable trade winds, much lower prices for accommodation, transport and entertainment than in Maui or Brazil for that matter. One downside is cooler temperatures and water (22-23C) during the southern winter...
If you have time, Rodrigues is a real gem as well (albeit less developed)!

Mauritius. 60km of reef protected flatwater lagoons. Epic downwinders. World class waves. Super exotic location.

Forget the summer months here as the wind probability lies around 15%.
