I'm headed to Maui on the 18th for the first time in summer and wanted to get some feedback on kite size. Looking and current wind and archive graphs, it seems like a small kite situation.

Thoughts?

Look for the giant high pressure system that sits north of Maui - it it is there, it will blow

consistent winds blow until thanksgiving.
june - september it's very windy and no waves - just wind swell (6-8m).
october can be epic with consistent wind and good chance of swell (7-10m).
november is usually wavy but wind is weaker and not as consistent (8-12m).
