A group of friends and I just returned from an annual 'pre memorial day trip' to Maui. Light winds and drizzle forced us to surf and travel around the island for 3 days. This was followed by 2 days of super gusty wind.
When we got on the water at lower kanaha, I picked a small kite (Naish Torch 8) and added really short lines (20 meter) to handle gusts to 35 Mph.
Variable conditions as always in beautiful Maui.
