Big waves pound the north shore of Maui marking the start of winter

This week we have seen some really big winter swells hitting the north shore of Maui.

  • Yesterday the 35' surf got everyone excited to head out to JAWS in Peahi, Haiku.  The Hana Highway and Hahana Rd intersection was like a parking lot as people carpooled or walked down to the cliff side to see the big wave surfers.
  • Baldwin Beach Park remains closed today after the waves came up and flooded the parking lot and pavillion.
  • Homes along the north shore in Kuau experienced extra high surf around 11:00 am as waves surged up much too close for comfort.  Is an oceanfront home really worth it?

Get your boards out and get ready for the winter surf season!

Wow! Sounds like a surfer's paradise. Back in my surfing days, I thought that 10 curls was great.

It's been nothing but rain nested in at our Iao valley. Wailuku has been wet and then warm and then wet again. Aloha Jeff

Packed my surfboard up years ago, but the waves sure are beautiful to look at!

Hi Georgina, great shot of the waves in Maui. Bad news for the park goers however those surfers would love it.

It's very hard for me sitting here in NY to think about winter surfing.  I mean they do it but my oh my it is cold.

Hi Georgina,

Wow, 35 feet waves is amazing but I guess that is why the best surfers go to Hawaii. Hope your weekend was great.
