It’s also home to Kahana Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary and the Alexander and Baldwin Sugar Museum, dedicated to Maui’s sugar industry. Kahului’s own major airport is located in the North shore. The climate is tropical wet, but during winter is very windy and dry, ideal for water sports.
Along the sea side, there are schools and shops to buy or rent surfing gear as well as to take surfing lessons if you are a beginner. Big Eds beach is right after Kahului Harbour on the right. It offers a regional classic wave quality for experienced surfers only. The power of the wave is fast and fun to ride. The wave direction is coming from the right and the sea is rocky.
The wind direction is coming from the southeast and the size of the swell starts working at 2 m/6 ft and holds up to 5 m/16 ft. Kahului Harbour has a few surfers only during weekends due to the extreme surfing conditions. Surfers should be careful of rip currents, urchins, rocks, buoys and sharks.
