    Im looking to relocate in a few years (maybe 5) But I have my heart set on Hawaii. I like Maui. The surf is pretty good there and I have a few friends that live there. The fishing? Never fished there. Where do you slip your boat? Im looking into a condo or a small house on the ocean ( has to be on the ocean) maybe in Lahaina. Any other towns or Any other islands you would suggest? Im not worried about getting island fever as I spend many winters living on islands and i Absolutely love it. I dont want to live in a retirement village , more of a surf town with some stores.
    Right now Im 20 so I hopefully have allot of time to choose. Thanks!
    Wheres the winter swell??

    Just made 28 years with most of it involving fishing either charter fishing or trailer boating. Dont worry about it these islands are very close, fish them all then make a decision. They all have lots to offer. Good luck Deliman

    Ya, i hate the place, especially the Kona, and screw Hawaii Kai. There is never any fish in all that blue water.

    Move to San Diego, then you can hang out with fine gentlemen such as this Antares character. Seriously though don't move to Maui, its not that cool.

    You should check out Molokai, it is after all the friendly isle. I really wouldn't bother with maui, its so crowded and expensive.

    Yeah that's what everyone thinks. Move to Maui, live in a condo on the beach, have a slip in the harbor, waterfalls everywhere and perfect surf everyday. Good luck. Condo's on the beach start at $2 million, slip in Lahaina Harbor $100K or 10 year waiting list, waterfalls only when their pouring over the highway during torrential rains and shutting the highway down - perfect surf, yup but crowded with 100 plus angry "waterman" who'll kick your ass after they drop in on you. Not trying to be humbug, just realistic. I see it all the time where I work...people want this perfect island lifestyle and then realize they have to work 2-3 jobs jus to pay rent. Manage your expectations, do some research, learn some history about Hawaii and you'll have a better chance of making it here. Good luck and aloha.
