Jaws - Maui Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Known as Peahi by the locals, this is a big-wave spot—surf only if you dare. Jaws is where world-class daredevils risk their lives on the biggest waves in the world—up to 70 feet. Mere mortals watch from the cliff as tow teams of surfers and Jet Skiers tackle this giant spot. Best Boards: Tow-in boards to rhino guns, 10 to 12 feet.

At Jaws, surf as big as anywhere in the world happens two or three times a year. Dropping into a goliath of a wave with all the power the ocean can muster is the ultimate thrill for those who dare. The huge peak towers in with wedge-shaped ears and hooting shoulders as Mother Ocean blows and trumpets the arrival of the king of waves."
