Re: Kitesurfing in Maui

I will be leaving as you are arriving. I am 180 and am brining 6,9, and 12 with 150 mako tt. Might bring directional, but not sure I want to pay oversize fee. Go to mauiwindcam. They have a cam of kanaha beach. Fun to check out.

Even if the wind is flat, surfing and SUP are great.

Enjoy

One of my daughters just moved to Charleston, and we are going to fly out and see her in mid Feb. Is it worth dragging along golf bag of kites and pay oversize fee. Last time I flew with kites, they arrived 3 days latter :oops: We will be there for about a week. Any input would be much appreciated. ...

So I have a line on 2015 OR flight with bar for $700. I do mostly free ride. I know they advertise this as a light wind kite.
