Jaws, Maui

jaws40 foot waves slam Jaws!  Located on the north shore of Maui off of Hana Highway, the dangerous wave conditions at Peʻahi was nicknamed Jaws after the film, comparing the unpredictability to a shark attack.  During these winter months, waves can exceed 60 feet and attract big wave surfers like Laird Hamilton and Shane Dorian (pictured above).  Residents look forward to the Red Bull Jaws contest held each year when these huge swells move in.
