The central Northshore town of Pā’ia started as a tiny Polynesian “kahalewai” (village by the sea) sitting on Maui’s windward coast along a freshwater stream.
Going back to the later 1800’s, Alexander and Baldwin established the Paia Plantation, where immigrant workers came from across the globe to their largest sugar mill, turning Paia in to a bustling plantation town.
In the 1930’s much of the town was unfortunately destroyed by fire, but the residents quickly rebuilt.
Fast forward, the 1960’s and 70’s a new wave of immigrants and eclectic people came to settle in Paia and in the 80’s and 90’s windsurfers from all around the world discovered the best windsurfing along the North Shore, with Paia as the town in the center. It is therefore sometimes called "The World Capital of Windsurfing.”

Ho’okipa Beach Park
Perhaps the most renowned windsurfing site in the world, Hoʻokipa is a beach park that boasts well-shaped waves breaking across a system of reefs and consistently strong winds that make it an ideal location for the sport.
