Where Does Surf in Maui Hawaii Come From?

Surfing in Maui is a popular activity, and the following guide will help answer the question of "where do the waves come from?"

First Winter Surf arrives on North Shore Maui

Winter is here! Its bitter sweet for us at Hawaiian Paddle Sports; when there is winter swell we can longer operate the Honolua Bay Excursion however we can go SURF at Honolua Bay! Each year winter swells bring HUGE waves to Maui, Hawaii’s North/West Shores.

Rare Hawaiian Monk Seal

We had a special visitor today on the west side of Maui during our private surf lesson… a rare, endangered, Hawaiian Monk Seal. Its estimated that there are fewer than 1,200 left in the world with only about 150 in the Main Hawaiian Islands. The remaining live in the minor outlying “Northwest Hawaiian Islands”.

South Swell!

What looks to be our last south swell of the season for Maui, Hawaii will be one of the best south swells in years!!! If you’re visiting maui this week and want to learn to surf give Hawaiian Paddle Sports a call 808-660-4228 for your private surf lesson!
