Last night, the news was saying that the winds were going to blow, 10 to 20 miles an hour. Winter is here on Maui. I woke up to early, the trade winds were just whipping up to 35 mph. We have been experiencing just a beautiful fall. Well winter has settled in, and most likely the rain will follow on the North Shore. I was heading to Kahului town and I had my trusty camera with me.
I was driving pass the Baldwin Estate, the Baldwins where early missionary's to Maui. This is one of many homes that they built in the early, and late 1800's. This estate is located in Haiku, Maui, on 25 acres. Haiku offers a blend of homes from plantation to contemporary design homes in 2 plus acres.
Here is another island Haiku Home, on two acres in Haiku Makai.
I was driving pass Hookipa Beach Park. It was way to windy for surfing, but a great day for those out windsurfing. The winds were actually really strong today.
I was getting a kick out of watching the tourist. Everyone loves to watch the surf. I could not resist taking their picture. It's fun to be on vacation, and it was evident that they were having a great time.
Even on super windy days, it has this beauty that is wild and majestic. If you look up the coast in this shot, that is were I am headed, to have a look at Kanaha Beach Park. Just maybe the wind is not out of control.
Well what do you know, the wind was firing. My sail was to big, so I settled for talking to the crew. A couple of my friends just arrive from Aspen. What I really like about windsurfing, is you meet people from all over the world. They are pretty much committed returning each year. Maui is the wind surfing capital of the world for good reason. It is also a great place to enjoy the ocean for all kinds of water sports.
Here is some windsurfing footage I took, hope you enjoy it.
This guy from Switzerland headed out, and was back on the beach re-rigging a smaller sail. So I hope you enjoy a little bit of our life on the North Shore of Maui. Did I mention our licensed B&B in Haiku, Pineapple Cottage located on 2-acres. So your next trip to Maui, make sure to visit the North Shore.
