On Maui it was a combination of:

People locked down looking for something to do.
Beaches being open when nothing else was.
No cruise ships and much less cargo ships leaving an empty protected harbor
No tourists buying new kite and windsurf gear and crowding up the water
Free .gov money from “stimulus” and the unemployment $800/week add on

It was like Christmas season in all the board shops all year. Nothing was in stock! People jumped into winging with both feet. Some came from foil surfing, many from kiting and windsurf. But also lots of folks with water but no wind experience picking up a wind-sport for the first time.

New wings and foil boards lasted about a week on the shelves. Used gear sold fast near new prices. Everyday in the harbor there were new folks learning the sport for the first time.

You can try Kevin Collins on Maui. He's been listing these all summer

Hey that’s me in the background doing the walk of shame. Gotta call my agent to see if I should be getting royalties for this.

I have a flare up of tennis elbow after three straight days of winging. Legs are tired for doing the walk of shame.
