Kahului Harbor Wing ShutDown Imminent

Postby hellomaui » Mon Oct 11, 2021 9:00 am

Kahului Wingsurfing access is about to be CXLed…

There was an incident at Kahului Harbor, Maui today with a wing foiler who said he was from Hood River., Oregon The wing foiler disobeyed the orders from a tugboat in the shipping channel and foiled around barges and between two tugs. He refused to give way. We spoke with this person and he was not apologetic or had ownership of doing anything wrong. This was a total lack of respect and knowledge of the local environment and issues. Some of you may be aware that the Maui Wing Foiling community is on VERY shaky ground with the canoe clubs and the Kahului Harbormaster at the moment.
Please pass this information along to anyone thinking of coming to Maui. We want you to enjoy world class wind and waves but we also want you to obey the rules of the road so that we can keep enjoying wing foiling here. And if anyone knows of a person who happens to currently be in Maui riding about a 5'0 Starboard with a blue F-One Strike wing - we would be grateful if you would let him know that he messed up. Any help in identifying this person is appreciated too.

Unbelievably inconsiderate risking everyone’s access and I hope the perpetrator gets sorted out in a hurry.

It might be worthwhile to also post this on nwkite.com . Most gorge folks post there & the perp might take more notice if he gets flamed by locals

A lot of talk on standupzone about that. Also some talk about losing access.
