Ma'alaea in Maui is a reasonably exposed reef break that only works once in a while. Summer offers the best conditions for surfing. Offshore winds blow from the north northwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the south. Best around mid tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Beware of rocks/boats.
