RE: Maui first timer
Me and my wife come to Maui for the first time 29-03-07.
I am a bit of an *board fan too. Looks like you can rent *board several places this year.
Here some links I found after a short research.
good links to where to stay/rent and teaching
Looks like you can get *board at NP through Vela.
For freeride, upper Kanaha should be the best spot.
When Kona winds then it should be Kihei
Where do you stay ?
