“Already several years had passed since our last trip to the States, about three, from Maui probably eight. It is our custom to join a slalom competition in our windsurfing trips and share a report of the places visited by showing not only sports but also General aspects. The last no-stra visit I took part in a competition organized by the Paddle Guru in San Francisco, We crossed the entire California coast making stops in San Francisco and then climbs inland areas of the Sierra Nevada, This year it was Maui with the usual "Maui National slalom race".
We begin by giving some general information of the trip to Maui, the second largest island of Hawaii, reachable from Europe with only one stop. The choices are many and may vary from the requirements of the chosen itinerary: in our case we chose a flight Aerlingus Milan-Seattle going from Du-Flores and from Seattle to Maui we flew with Delta Airways. Both carry the equipment but the Delta apply stricter rules on sports baggage: recommend to read their rules and respect to not run into bad-situations. In the Seattle airport, there is also a storage service in case you need to start again the next day or for long periods you can leave your bags at the airport ( 15$ bladder type ).
Coming to Maui ends the first step of the journey, now, you should choose the accomodation: Obviously the choice is subjective. In west island, Kaanapali and Lahaitutta there is great choice of discount hotels, very nice but expensive, I'm also a bit far from the main road and spot windsurf masts to reach them is always a little busy.
The Northwest is home to locals, is less touristy and you can find a hotel or B&B nice and less expensive, While the town of Paia is just minutes from spots, is very nice, many shops, restaurants and bars. For breakfast we recommend the Pairs Bay Coffee from which main spots are easily accessible.
The material is withdrawn at the time of rental and reported at the end, no geographical constraint or use. Also for surfing enthusiasts like myself is difficult (but not impos-sible) find quality waves during the summer months.
In my opinion the best spots for surfing despite being a little crowded remains Leeward Bay Hookipa: Obviously scon-CIL to position themselves for the main peak, the locals are not renowned for their diplomacy.
We went to attend the Maui national slalom race, held from 27 to the 29 July, a national appointment that repeats from thirty editions. This year they say it was a lucky race, full of wind.
Jimmie Hepp, well-known photo-graph of our industry as well as local of Maui, claims that such fine conditions have not been seen for many years, Personally I was very happy, I've never used zato large equipment, ranging from medium to small sails.
The competition will carry out ge with a traditional slalom path, the competitors are divided into batteries by category (pro, semipro, Sport) without eliminations, each battery is a test with its ranking, they are normally held 4 evidence in the morning and 4 in the afternoon, around the 15 normally was given the stop of the day and made the awards (I'm no made daily Awards).
Old Lahaina Luau: the most authentic, offers food and Hawaiian performances explaining the history of the island from Polynesian migrations. Reservations require di-verse months in advance, for example we were on a waiting list since January for ave-re your reservation in late July, is an exclusive venue and marita patience.
In the time we were there we organised a tour of the island by helicopter, is an unforgettable experience and you will see some areas that cannot be reached by normal roads. At the heliport near Kanaha there are several companies that perform this service, with different excursions: the average cost is about 250$
