Hi I’m new here. Wondered from some other platform and it looks like there’s some good action over here.
Originally from SCal area, moved to Maui 2011. Lucked into being in the right place/right time/around the right foil people. I saw the birth of modern day foiling a few years ago with Dave Kalama learning on a SUP foil from Go Foil out off Maui’s north shore. It blossomed from just a few in a tight crew back then, to most spots now have foilers out.
Fast forward to the introduction of the wing, and things are really taking off here. More people are getting into the sport now (wing foil) than I’ve ever seen before with just the surf foiling. Kids, moms, dads, gramps and grandma. It’s nuts. But it’s a natural fit for Maui, we have wind just about every day.
Currently I’m winging almost every day, don’t surf foil much anymore. Seeking new zones to wing all the time, doing up wind runs and downwinders are fun, and I’d really like to explore some south swell spots this summer that are uncharted off of south Maui.
I ride Go Foil, Kalama foil boards, BRM (Board Riding Maui) wings, and just got another KT wing board. I have early access to all of Go Foils new gear, have been using the NL series for winging that works very good. There’s new stuff in the works that should be in production in the next month or 2.
LMK if you have any questions about visiting Maui, wing or foil gear, I’d be happy to help.
