About HST

Alan Cadiz, HST's founder

Alan Cadiz

Alan Cadiz, an accomplished World Cup Pro, founded Maui’s premier windsurfing school in 1985, filling the need for performance lessons on the Valley Isle. Using his knowledge and expertise, Alan continues to bring windsurfing, kitesurfing and stand up paddling instruction to the highest level.

Alan Cadiz started kitesurfing with the first kiting pioneers on Maui. With a lifetime of surfing and windsurfing experience, kitesurfing was second nature. Alan Cadiz is now setting the standard for kitesurfing instruction. With nearly 25 years experience teaching windsurfing, coupled with 10 years of kitesurfing, Alan has developed a method of teaching that is second-to-none.


If he is not sailing or kitesurfing, Alan enjoys deep sea fishing in Maui’s beautiful waters. He is also an avid big wave surfer, tow-in surfer, paddle boarder and a great dad to his two daughters, Cady and Cloe.
