Hi everyone,

I am going to be visiting Waikiki and Maui shortly (with the Canadian Navy) and was wondering if there were any flyers in the area that I could hook up with for some flying.

Thanks

Jason

What did you find out? I'm headed to Maui in a couple weeks. I hear they have short beach areas. Did you find any areas to fly in?

Maui is tough, not much beach to use.

Waikiki, right near there... Kapialani (sp?) Park... Wind is a little wonky, but lots of room, used to do competitions there.

Also on Ohau, north shore, head for Sandy Beach... Great grass field there too, generally higher winds. ;)

SO sorry I missed this topic first time around, not sure what happened.

Thanks John, I had been wondering if it was going to be worth the effort to take a kite or two. Maybe I'll just concentrate on snorkeling and tourist type stuff.

One Rev with a street frame, 30' or 50' lines... Can't go wrong, takes up VERY little room. ;)
