I posted this in the SW US forum as it technically includes Hawaii, but perhaps some Gorge people may be considering a trip to Maui so I'm cross-posting here:

Aloha, We here on Maui have been feeling the growing pains associated with the explosion of wingfoiling here. In an effort to mollify the parties affected by this (windsurfers, kiters, fishermen, canoe clubs) we put up a guide to explain things for everyone's benefit. This guide covers some of the launches (but not all), etiquette, conditions, tide concerns, etc... I hope this will be of help to anyone planning a trip here to foil. Here is the URL where it can be accessed:

Also, in case anyone is considering learning the sport here, we have an ideal place for that in the Kahului Harbor. Unfortunately this has not set well with the local canoe clubs as the last thing in the world a canoe team wants to deal with is beginner foilers. For that reason we are attempting to establish rules to avoid conflict, which includes not foiling in the harbor when established canoe team practice and events are occurring. Their current schedule is clarified here:

The actual times for the kids paddling program is 3:30 -5:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The adult paddling program is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays, 5:00-7:00.

When the canoes are in the water they criss cross along the shoreline/launch area from both directions at full speed. If you are a novice and cannot wingfoil in control and stay on the far side of the harbor, then you should stay away from Wingfoiling in the harbor on these days:
3:30 -5:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and also Thursday, and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays, from 5:00-7:00pm.

Excellent post Steve! Thanks so much. Wish we could get something for all the major windsport spots in the world (Gorge, SPI, Hatteras, etc). Mahalo and aloha.
