Live Among World-Class Surfers on Maui’s North Shore

Without a doubt, Maui is the best island in the world—not just because Conde Nast keeps awarding the Valley Isle with that title, but because it is home to such a diverse and amazing community.

For example, Maui’s North Shore community is comprised of free spirits, families, artists, entrepreneurs and water athletes.

With the all the best at their fingertips, North Shore residents can just soak up the sun at the beach or enjoy surfing, windsurfing, standup paddling—you name it!

When looking for property on Maui’s North Shore, buyers have many options in various neighborhoods—Spreckelsville, Pā‘ia, Kū‘au and Ha‘ikū.

With a booming watersports industry right in the backyard of the North Shore, new residents will soon discover that they are living near some of the most amazing athletes and water sports leaders in the universe. From novice to paid professionals, these water athletes may live right next door.

“If you’re into ocean sports at all, the North Shore of Maui is the place to be.”

I came to windsurf back in 1980. Since then, the ocean sports scene has exploded here,” said Klaus Simmer, ex-pro windsurfer, co-owner of Simmer Hawaii and Realtor with Coldwell Banker Island Properties.


“Maui has become the epicenter of product development for windsurfing, kitesurfing, big wave surfing and stand up paddling,” said Simmer. That’s made it possible for many of the world’s best watermen and water women to make Maui their home.

“It’s great to be able to share the waves with them and to watch them up front and close,” Simmer added. “And of course, it’s always fun to run into everyone and talk story on the beach or in Pā‘ia, which at this point, I’d have to say is the coolest little surf town around.”

If you are an ocean lover and enjoy living in a tight-knit community, Maui’s North Shore might just be the perfect place for you. Here, you’ll find a myriad of restaurants that range from casual to fine dining; great locally owned boutiques and gift shops; tons of yoga, fitness, healing arts and wellness services, art galleries and more.

For those with kids at home, some of the best public, charter and private schools are also located in the North Shore area.

With tons of conveniences, great style, lots of smiles and a beach at arms reach, you can’t go wrong.
