How many workouts can you do for five hours straight as whales breach the water alongside you? Welcome to the world of windsurfing, where challenging sessions in the sun lead to the perfectly sculpted beach body.
Former champion and Maui resident Matt Pritchard might be slightly biased when he names this Hawaiian hot spot as his favorite windsurfing destination. But he also has lots of supporting evidence on his side, like the high concentration of professional windsurfers on famous Ho’okipa Beach, the warm year-round temperatures, and the opportunity to windsurf right alongside playful whales. Trade winds are at their peak from May to October, while the winter months are best for spotting whales sharing the waters.
Want a pro by your side as you give windsurfing a shot? Pritchard is offering a six-day Aloha Windsurfing Clinic" this fall at the Four Seasons Resort Maui. From Nov. 10–15, 2013.
