Big Waves Today - Maui North Shore - Valentine's Day 2008

MAUI NORTH SHORE SURF

Today they are calling for waves to reach 30 feet on the north shore of Maui.  Here are some pictures of the waves at midday, Feb 14, 2008.  They get a lot bigger than this at times.  This is the north shore of Maui - between Paia town and Ho'okipa Beach Park.  Further out to the east will bring you to the famous surf break called JAWS.  Today is not "epic" enough for Jaws, but some tow in surfers will go  went there anyway, and had tons of fun.  Maui is a playground for the hard core surfers, windsurfers, and kiteboarders.  Year round great conditions attract people from all around the world to come here and train.  World class contests are held at Ho'okipa and Kanaha beaches a number of times throughout the year.

Here's a view of the coastline looking back towards Mama's Fish House in the distance.  These little beaches are used mostly by kitesurfers.  Access is a little tricky, but they don't care.  I took all these pictures from the same little patch of ground perched out over the water.  Many other people were stopping to snap some shots.  The traffic coming into Paia today was unreal... everyone wants to see the big waves I guess.

I could have spent more time, waiting for the really big sets to roll in, but had some appointments.  Today was also Realtor Caravan in Haiku/Paia, with 10 great properties to see.  More on that later.

Maui will soon be home to an Oceanlinx wave project for producing electrical energy.

If you're a windsurfer, you probably already want to move to Maui.  Let me know if I can help in any way.  As a long time Maui resident, and experienced Real Estate agent, I can guide you through the process of Maui homeownership.

Aloha from Maui - Georgie Hunter

Deborah - It's a surfer's paradise.  I guess they did go out at Jaws and had a great day.

I'm always so fascinated by Hawaii's coastlines. Florida's are just so straight. Kind of like the flatness of the state I guess.

I haven't seen the ocean reports for Oahu in the last few days.  We did have some nice surf on Valentines days down by the Campbell Industrial Park.  My wife and I parked and had lunch, it was really beautiful.

Lisa - It's a very rugged coastline on the north shore here, which makes it interesting.

Randy - they say another big swell is coming on Monday
