If there's a decent south swell, Sidewalks off Keawekapu down towards Wailea can be great, the boat launch in Kihei is also good. If the swell is south west, Thousand Peaks out past the tunnel towards Lahaina is great, as is Luaniopoko Beach Park, that's where a lot of local West Side kids learn to surf, same for Kihei keikis who learn to surf at Charlie Youngs. Unfortunately all these surfboard rental businesses are screwing it up for everyone.

Aloha

Sidewalks, the boat launch and Charlie Youngs are all FAST enough for a shortboard with a good south swell. Thousand Peaks and Luaniopoko are pretty much long board stuff. We did have a major Kona storm through here back in around 1993, kicked up such a huge south swell that it sucked the majority of the sand off the southern beaches, created a temporary reef, I recall counting over forty surfers off Kamaole Beach One, surfing three distinctive breaks. Doesn't happen often. If it did Kihei would be more like Waimea!
