Advanced+. Officially there is no kitesurfing allowed off Ka’anapaali beach. However its primarily a tourist resort area as this is where the majority of hotels on Maui re located. The wind tends to be light on the beach but once you go out into the channel the wind is actually pretty strong out there as the wind funnels between Molokai and the West Maui mountains. The launches are sketchy due to light wind conditions and you may end up drift launching. Great for Wakestyle and Big Air.
