I don't know what was more fun, flying above Ma'alaea Freight Trains, or surfing the waves! This spot is known for having the fastest wave in the world!

Because the waves break off the Ma'alaea Harbor wall the wave reverberates and creates a back wave that looks like a Train Side Car. If you know what you are doing this Zone provides for a good launch! The photo above shows this wave. Check out the large image here!
