This beach is perfect for the beginners and its side on to the shore winds helps the beginners to come shore safely. The waves on the kite beach are divided for the riders. Little farther from shore is basically for the riders who are in the intermediate and advanced stage. Waves which are largest are only for expert riders.

 

The other important beach on this island is the Kanaha Beach which is around two miles and most of it lies on the Maui County’s Kanaha Beach Park. Every beach has its own important features. “Old Hale beach”, “Old Man’s Beach” is the two divisions of the areas of the Kite Beach. Ka’a Point is another beach which is used for launching area. Fishermen and families also give the riders the rooms in this area. Off shore to Ka’a Point is the Bone yard, which is a very shallow place which comes out at low tide.

Wavesurfing in Maui

Posted by kite2012 On April - 10 - 2012

You might have heard of something called “The Jaws” in Maui. The Jaws is of course the name for the giant waves that break along the shoreline at Maui. You really need some balls to ride into the jaws, which probably explain why you never see any girls riding into the Jaws. Niccolo Porcella is a guy with balls and one of few that does not bail out for the Jaws!
