Getting High on Kiteboarding

Indulging in a Maui Lifestyle

Maui is blessed with some of the best beaches to either explore the world of kiteboarding (beginners) or hone your craft (Maui’s growing group of word class watermen). Due to the islands configuration, there are natural parts of the island that are blessed with the perfect conditions for kiteboarding.


Kiteboarding was inspired out of development in technological advances of windsurfing, paragliding, and wakeboarding. In other circles, the challenging water sport is know as kitesurfing. No matter what you call it, this is an extreme sport that takes sweeping wind gusts, guts, the right equipment, and a bit of trial and error.

For those not very fluent in water sports, the mechanics of kiteboarding are as follows: the kiteboarder must choose a kiteboard suited to their expertise level, which looks like a small surfboard or wakeboard with straps. Then the kiter is pulled across the water by a giant kite soaring in the wind. Sounds easy enough, but it takes a little practice to coordinate the moves. Kiteboarding schools on the island are happy to provide instruction.

Aqua Sports Maui is a large and recognizable Kiteboarding School on Maui and a locals favorite. They believe, “A school is only as good as it’s instructors and we have the best.” To check out their exceptional staff, follow the link to scout out your preferred instructor.

Action Sports Maui is Hawaii’s original kiteboarding school, and is a great source for watersports adventures. Their vision in a nutshell: developed out of their founder’s world wide thirty year career water sports, is now eager to share his knowledge in Sailing, Windsurfing, Surfing, Standup paddle Surfing, Kitesurfing, Parasailing, and Waterskiing.

Long known for its reputation as a premier site for windsurfing, Maui’s nearly year-round trade winds, warm waters, and gorgeous beaches are an equal draw for kitesurfers. Popular kitesurfing sites include the west end of Kanaha Beach Park, near the Kahului Airport, Kihei beaches and west side areas above Lahaina. However, Maui’s north shore holds the title as Maui’s best kiting beach.
