Fun wave - I finally had the good fortune to make it to the islands and rode this spot a couple of times. It remids me of Cardiff Reef in San Diego...except with gloriously warm water.

Little Mac Attack - Little Makaha is one of the better longboard spots on Maui's NW Side. Before longboards got popular 10 yrs ago or so, This spot would only have a few surfers in the water. But now on good days maybee 20-35 at one time. When the wave is on you can get long rides with lots of cuback sections and a good inside bowl. John Severson Surfer Mags Famous photographer lives on the point, so give some respect to the old grayhead, he still rips-it!
