Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, Maui’s only Forbes Five Star Resort, today announced its preliminary lineup of 2013 Unforgettable Events, a series of one-of-a-kind experiences tailored to the resort’s active lifestyle guests. Several new water events, including a “Surf Camp with Dave Kalama” and a “Windsurf Camp with Matt Pritchard,” are part of the calendar of special events that go through the year. Here is what is coming up for 2013:

  •     Surf Camp with Dave Kalama -- Watch for February dates: Surfing rules in Hawaii. In this multi-day event, guests will learn from Hawaii’s legendary waterman Dave Kalama. He is best known as a renowned big wave surfer who co-developed tow-in surfing. He also has been featured in several films, including the surf documentary Riding Giants. Surf Camp will include classes and on-water instruction to introduce wave aficionados to the basics and finer points of hanging ten.
  •     Vinyasa Yoga Retreat with Kathryn Budig -- February 19-24: Kathryn Budig, one of the yoga’s vivacious young practitioners, returns to Four Seasons Resort Maui to help guests cultivate their physical, mental and spiritual health. Her past retreats have received high praise from guests because she adeptly combines a playful mixture of challenging classes with her infectious love for yoga and her joyful personality. This inspiring retreat is played out on the stunning Wailea Beach and in other special natural Maui settings.
  •     Windsurfing Camp with Matt Pritchard -- March 2-7: Ready to experience the challenge of windsurfing, where every wave, chop and jump is different? Chase the wind and waves with Matt Pritchard, former PWA Super X World Champion and World Tour title winner. He will bring his brand of windsurf training to Four Seasons Resort Maui. On the water, he will help guests learn new skills, introduce methods to sharpen skills already in their repertoire, and demonstrate how to maximize fun on the water. This is the perfect event for those who crave to carve it up in the waves.
