Today’s Wind Forecast – Model Tables: Wind Yesterday:  Here is yesterday’s wind graph for Kanaha. Weather Map: Global weather patterns affect our local weather.

Local Kiteboarding Community

LOCAL SCENE: At Action Sports we have built a community of kiteboarders around our love for the sport. As the first school we have taken on a responsibility to the community to make the sport safer, and to foster responsible kiteboarding practices. We helped create a working system on Maui whereby kiteboarding can be enjoyed alongside the traditional watersports, and integrate with the wider community. As pioneers and early promoters of kiteboarding we established high safety standards and solid techniques that we shared with the local kiteboarders, that became the blueprint for the lesson program as well as the local kiting guidelines. The Safe kiting guidelines were adopted by the local kitesurfing community that eventually became the basis for the local rules and the formation of our local kiteboarding association. We are proud to be a part of a vital…
