    Make Your Way To Maui

    Maui Map

    Maui's diverse landscape, from sunny beaches to towering bamboo forests, makes it easy to find unique pockets to explore. When we're not training for the Maliko Downwinder at our annual Ho'olaule'a Ocean Festival, these are a few of our favorite places to visit:

    1. Shop Local in Pa'ia:

    Whether browsing the exceptionally curated textiles and gifts at Pearl, or grabbing a wood-fired pizza at Flatbread Company, the finely crafted Pehuea Leather is the perfect compliment to the rich character of the town. And don't forget to head to Charleys late night for a possible sighting of legend Willie Nelson.

    2. Eat Dinner at Mama's Fish House:

    There's nothing quite like a Hawaiian sunset, and no better spot to watch it from than Mama's Fish House, which boasts delicious fresh fish catches daily, and is just around the bend from Pa'ia. If you want the full experience, book a stay at their beach front cottage, and feel right at home in the 'Upena.

    3. Go Whale Watching off Wailea:

    Just off Maui lie some of the best waters for whale watching, and from November to May the area is teeming with Kohola (Humpback whales). Feel the sea breeze in the Nohea Mesh as you watch for the whales to surface, spout, and breach just off the coast.

    4. Head over to Lahaina: 

    Stroll down Front Street in the Kupuna Slide for a relaxing afternoon. Slip into these refined yet comfortable sandals and relax beneath the historic Lahaina banyan tree. Cap it off with a late lunch at Longhi's, and then stop into Ululanai's for a shave ice.

    Plan Your Next Escape to Oahu

    Oahu Map

    O'ahu offers the perfect blend of culture, outdoor sport and natural beauty, from big winter waves to globally welcoming Waikiki Beach. Check in to the SurfJack Hotel & Swim Club and then head out to some of our favorite local spots:

    1. Head To the North Shore:Halu'a

    Known as the Seven Mile Miracle, this stretch of beach is home to some of the most legendary waves in the world, and is as awe inspiring as it is dangerous. From the pounding surf of Pipe to big wave mecca Waimea Bay, stay comfortable in the water-friendly Halu'a.

    Ohana Slide2. Jump On the Mo'o in Hale'iwa Harbor:

    Head out with our friend Kaiwi Berry and Islandview Hawai'i to swim with sharks in crystal clear tropical waters. Jump back in the boat, and slip on your water loving 'Ohana Slides. With a quick drying upper, this sandal will take you from the boat to Hale'iwa Bowls for a post dive Acai snack with no worries.

    3. Cruise Around Waikiki:Eleu Trainer

    Slide into ARVO for avocado toast and a coffee, then head out to explore the South Shore of Oahu. From Kaka'ako to Diamond Head, don't miss a step in the 'Eleu Trainer. Lightweight, breathable, and designed to make a seamless transition from Mauka to Makai, this Trainer will keep up no matter where you head.


    4. Hike Tantalus Lookout:

    Leave the crowds behind and head up these lush mountains for an amazing view of Diamond Head and all of Waikiki. Get there in comfort with the Hamakua, designed with these bold landscapes and your big adventures in mind.
