Hawaii

Trade wind riders #2

Windsurf Clinic - March 28th to April 6th 2024

For intermediate windsurfers who want to push their limits on the mytic spots of Maui.

March and April is when the trade winds are at their peaks. This clinic is dedicated to wave sailing, including wave riding and jumping sessions, adapting to options available. Main focus is to ride as much as possible, to learn how to feel confident around the crowded spots of Maui, and how to jump and ride Hawaiian style.

Maui is one of my favorite spots in the world, if not my favorite since I made it home. The wind’s consistency is beyond imagination compared to anywhere I have been around the world. There is always a side of the island that offers more wind, and therefore it is possible to be on the water almost everyday. It is where the industry is evolving and it is where most of the best windsurfers in the world come for training and to push their limits.
