Bart de Zwart

Windsurfer since 35 years, professional stand up paddler, kiter since the beginning and adventurer. From windsurfing Jaws to paddling  between the icebergs of the Arctic. The water is his passion. Bart and Dagmar settled back to Maui after sailing around the world and decided that Maui is the best place to live or to windsurf, SUP or kite.

Dagmar de Zwart

Windsurfer and stand up paddler, sailed with Bart and their daughter around the world for 3 years. Passionate about people and water sports and working in windsurf centers since 20 years.


Top-of-the-line Starboard Boards and Hot Sails Maui sails, hand selected for Maui conditions. Early release gear, newest rigs.


Change gear as much as you like, swap windsurf for SUP or surfboard or go snorkeling for a change all included in one great price.


We’re the closest to the beach. Just ½ mile from Kite Beach and less than a mile from Kanaha.


If we’re not the lowest rental price, we’ll match the lowest.


Kanaha Kai’s founders, Dagmar & Bart de Zwart, have been in the industry for over 30 years.


We’re passionate about our sports, whether we’re on the water or in the shop. This is a windsurfing shop, not a surf shop with a few windsurfers.
