Vela Maui - Open Year-Round
Introduced in 1998, the Neil Pryde Maui Test Center followed the tradition of all Neil Pryde Test Centers around the world, offering the latest Neil Pryde sails, rigs and accessories to make your windsurfing experience not only fun, but enlightening. With consistent tradewinds and a wide variety of conditions from a handful of different launches, Maui provides the perfect windsurf vacation destination no matter your skill level. From Slalom sailing in Kihei, wave sailing the North Shore, or smooth shallow-water at The Cove at Kanaha Beach Park, Maui has it all! In July 2001, Neil Pryde Maui and Vela Windsurf Resorts teamed up to create the VELA MAUI CENTER, as the flagship in the Vela resort destination armada.
Located within the Neil Pryde Maui retail shop, Vela Maui center boasts an impressive array of gear, featuring Neil Pryde rigs and the entire lineup from JP. Unlike other Vela destinations, you will stop in at the center to equip yourself with rentals to take with you for the week.Vela's package includes: choice of accommodations, Maui's best selection of windsurf equipment, rental car or van, and optional lessons. Each rental includes 1 board, 2 sails and a complete rig, plus soft-top surf racks for your rental car. Beginners can take advantage of a lesson program including equipment during instruction. We can help take your sailing to the next level, from Kanaha to Ho'okipa...but, probably not in one week.
