    A few years back Naish had a shop in Oahu (apparently one of the best waves in the whole of Hawaii is on Oahu) and you could get kit really cheap.

    I think this may be it

    There is an address on the contact us link

    There used to be a Naish shop in Kailua, but that was a long time ago - not sure if it's still there.

    Shop was still there in July this year. Looked like their inventory was 50% SUPs, 25% kites and 25% windsurfing equipment. I didn't see much 2nd hand gear in the shop.

    Randy Naish has a shaping bay in the back of the shop, while I was there I saw a half finished board in the shaping bay that is supposed to be a 120 L wave board for the 2015 range, so sounds like Naish is still committed to Oahu.

    Try googling flights between HNL and OGG, I think you can find them for less than $100, and board bags used to be $35 each way on inter island flights.

    Thanks for the replies guys - much appreciated

    I will contact Matt and the surf shops on Oahu, hopefully they can give some idea of the 2nd hand prices.

    For windsurfing that will probably be Diamond Head - not far from Honolulu. I think it works best in the summer. The best waves are on the north shore, renowned for many of the best surfing waves on the planet during the winter. I don't think windsurfers are particularly welcome there though!

    Weirdly, I wrote a guide to Hawaii for American Airlines about 25 years ago - and they flew me out there to do my research! Seems like another world now....

    I may be wrong, but if you ever look at any US magazines the prices quoted are similar to ours, but then they are in dollars, so are therefore a fair bit cheaper with exchange rates.
    Good luck to you, you spawny git !
