My wife wants to go to Hawaii in October. I have never been but obviously want to kite.

I would like to learn to ride waves as well.

1) Is October ok for riding?
2). Where is the place to go? What island?

Thanks for any ideas.

Hey, this is Nick! Yeah, Hawaii should have some wind in October, last year it was great! For the most part Maui is the best bet for wind, it is windly almost all of the time there. The terrain funnels the trade winds and you can generally expect wind at Naish or Kite Beach. On Maui you can expect to see people on 7m and 9m most of the time. Oahu, which is the island I live on, usually has lower wind with most people riding 12m or 14m. On Maui the places to go are all around the airport for the most part. On Oahu, there are two main location, Kailua and Mokuleia.

Kailua is a great safe spot on the east side of Oahu with a fantastic beach. There are mild waves in most areas, but you can ride to spots with larger waves. There is also an island that stops many waves creating a flatter area to ride in.

Mokuleia in general has higher wind speed and if it is sunny it will thermal and produce a metro-magic like effect. However, there is shallow reef area all around and also that is what the waves crash into, so it is a more advanced spot. There may be a path out to the water, but most people start on the edge of the sand and send the kite when a wave comes in. This is one of the few spots I have kited where a much larger percentage wears helmets and everyone wears rash guard to protect them from Reef. The Maui spots I have ridden are fairly flat, but I have heard the waves breaking areas on Maui are fairly dangerous.

Let me know which island you are going to and I can tell you more...
