Long paddle out from Kanaha Beach park to outer reef - 8-10min if your experienced but a tough 15min plus haul for lower end paddlers (and then they have little juice left to surf). Long fun wave - lots of longboarders sit on the peak but inside sections offer good option for both left and right.

Lots lof meth head homeless campers have taken over the nearby area as a camp town for Maui's homelss. They scour the parking lot...don't worry about surf stuff but dont' leave any other stuff in view.
this is a major windsurf/kiteboard wave and you have to get on it prior to the wind junkies. As it is offshore it is the FIRST to blow out on the island too. Get on it early...dawn patrol is awesome out there!
Much Aloha for the most part...some old timers dominate the peak with super logs. The SUP gang has invaded too. You can move around though and find room to play. doesn't close out until over 12 foot faces....when it's clost to close out stick to the lefts and work the channel as the channel for the rights dissapears quicker than the lefts.
