Best surfing watching from shore on Maui

Are there any places on Maui in February that you can go to watch surfers from the shore? I realize that can probably be done anywhere on the island. However, specifically where would you recommend going to watch JAWS in February? If there are specific beach names, it would be appreciated. Thanks!

To actually go to the area that is Jaws, you have to go on private property. I don't recommend it. You can see surfers at Hookipa (just past Paia) and Honolua Bay if surf is up.

We like to go to Hookipa beach to watch the surfers and windsurfers.

You can better view the surfers at the top of the cliff. If you want to better watch the windsurfers, then drive down to the road to be more with the ocean level. There are parking at both places.

We also like to go to Ka'a Point (near Kahului area) to watch the kite surfers.

Keep an eye on the surf reports at Honolua Bay. I got some great pictures this past Feb/Mar from that vantage point
