Maui Wave Riders is a few minutes walk from Maui Vista at 1975 South Kihei Road. They guarantee you’ll stand on your first lesson (I did). They also rent surfboards, paddle boards, and kayaks. Lessons are across the street off Kalama Park where there is almost always an easy two foot wave.
When people fish from the beach, as brother and sister Shelly and Rodney are getting ready to do in the picture to the right, the hook is baited, weighted, and cast far out in the surf. The fishing rod is then posted in the sand with a bell on the rod. Everybody sits back, relaxes, chats with friends, reads a book, catches some rays – whatever they want to do. When the bell rings, everybody jumps up to see what’s on the line. If it’s a big fish, a crowd will gather.
Want to try it? In Hawaii you don’t even need a license to fish!
