Maui Windsurfing Events

Most of Maui's windsurfing events take place at Kanaha Beach, Hookipa Beach, or Spreckelsville Beach but Maui no longer has many (if any) of the world class windsurfing events it once had. Some say it is because Maui County's 2007 crackdown on unlicensed B&B lodging and vacation home rentals caused Maui to be considered a less desirable venue for international windsurfing competitions.

Former Maui Windsurfing Events

Aloha Classic Wave Championship
The Aloha Classic Windsurfing Competition is a surfing competition founded in 1984 that was held for many years at Hookipa Beach Park on the North Coast of Maui. The event was usually held in November and it included categories for windsurfers from age 13 and under (Menehunes) to age 40 and over (Grand Masters). I'm not sure about the current status of the Maui Aloha Classic Wndsurfing Event but the Maui Windsurfing Association made this announcement after cancelling the 2007 Aloha Classic: "We are sad to make this decision at this time but it could not be avoided as the title sponsor pulled out in the past week leaving little time to pursue a similar sponsor of the same caliber. In combination, there has been a lack of rental housing available on the north shore with the Maui County's crack down on transient vacation rentals, leaving many competitors and sponsors without a place to stay during the event."

PWA Hawaii Pro (2004-2006)
The PWA Hawaii Pro Windsurfing competition was held at Hookipa Beach Park from 2004 to 2006 along with a local Maui amateur windsurfing event called the Aloha Classic. The event was no longer an event on the PWA tour after 2006 and the Web site PwaHawaiiPro.com is no longer online.
