Legends about SURFING are found in the earliest stories of ancient Hawai‘i. Today, the fascination with this “SPORT OF KINGS ” is as alive as ever, and Maui, with its array of beaches, clear waters and year-round surf, attracts an endless stream of surfers.

HO‘OKIPA BEACH PARK (known as a choice windsurfing spot), PĀ‘IA BAY and HĀMOA BEACH in Hāna all offer world-class surfing, while HONOLUA BAY offers spectators a spectacular vantage point of the breaks from the cliff above the water.

Maui also plays host to PE‘AHI , aka JAWS , that’s home to some of the biggest rideable waves mother ocean has to offer. The big waves here are hard to predict and should be attempted only by world-class surfers.

Learning how to surf is a rewarding adventure. There are lessons for those who want to give it a try. Ask your concierge or a lifeguard where to rent a board or take a lesson nearby.
