- Swell directions of WNW are MUCH less strong at places like Kanaha and even Hookipa than posted. Swell directions of NW and NNW are about accurate for Maui. Swell directions of N, NNE, and NE tend to be stronger than posted.
- Wind speeds of E of at least 11 on Oahu mean likely good windsurfing and kiting in Maui.
- Sometimes, it's more fun than the cam makes it look.
- Uncrowded surf is often more fun that better, more perfect surf.
- Rain in the forecast often means just a refreshing tropical shower. Heavy rain with south winds usually means a Kona storm which can be rainy all day.
- Weather forecasts are sometimes totally wrong. I've seen many days with a forecast of no wind blow a steady 20 tradewind.
- Clear skies in Spreckelsville at 10am with clouds over the West Maui Mountains means good wind conditions.
- If you're willing to drive, there's almost always somewhere on Maui with good wave and wind conditions for you every single day of the year.
- Like anywhere in the world, there will be a few days of the year where it's better to do a non-water sport such as cycling or hiking.
- The wind tends to shut down earlier in the winter time. Don't wait until 3pm to try to sail or kite. Get out there at noon if it's windy!
- The forecast is often wrong in the winter.
- If the wind is totally calm, and there’s a front with north winds coming later in the day, change your plans and get in the water ASAP. When the front hits, it will be victory at sea within minutes.
