Dont worry about the locals. They are just angry but dont bite.
I lived on maui for a year in Paia.
Jawz is an amazing place to go see when it goes off. I've never seen anything like it. No way in hell you want to surf it though. I always thught it was tow-in only anyways. As for places to stay, there are a few fairly inexpensive bnb's in Paia and some in Haiku. There is also a hostel in Paia but I was told it is pretty sketch. Just pop your head into Anthony's or Livewire and staff will be able to help you phone the owners and get you set up.
As for trying to find jawz, it's as easy as thumbing it on the Hana highway towards Haiku from Paia. Whoever pics you up will not only know, but will likely also be on their way there if it is going off.

go to Hookipa park on Maui's north shore, East of Kahului on road to Hana. Check out Hookipa park first- if waves are breaking big there, they are breaking at Jaws. Turn left on the road right before the cemetary- go all the way down, road turns to dirt. Stay right. Park, go under cable, take left and walk through pineapple field to beach. Beware- some locals might break your windows if they don't know your car... they ride motorcycles and quads. Leave nothing of value whatsoever in your car.

Locals are very cool... I got along with them all. Just watch out for your car if you are parking at jaws. Some locals ruin it for the rest. Also, if going to Hana, watch your car past the pools at "Woody's Place." some locals break windows there too- maybe Woody himself!!

So many people claiming to be 'locals'.... how many years do you need to live there, and how close? And then how come you own the waves bra?
Chill out, theres plenty of waves!

While you are there, dont forget to "respect the culture". Living here one is constantly reminded with shirts and bumperstickers, print ads etc. ad nauseum.
"Pissed off local" and others posting here give you some insight as to what there is to respect about the local culture, which is nothing at all. Brasilians could teach Hawaiians alot about what they like to call "Aloha".
Indigineous Hawaiian people are only about 6 generations removed from cannibalism, that is IF you could fine a real Hawaiian, most people living here are decended from various Asian peoples that came here to work in the sugar and pineapple fields. Go to the park @ Iao and look around.
So, can one of you so called "Locals" please tell us what there is to respect about the local culture?

I believe that Laura Vogel recently got a lesson in the local culture. you know, the defenseless 43 year old women all alone whose last communication was a text saying "I am meeting all the locals" while she was hiking @ twin falls area. She has never been seen since.
Fits perfectly, these big tough guys will go after someone defenseless, perfering women and children.
Dont go the any surf spot or anywhere else on this or any Hawaiian island on your own, period. It's not safe.
My Marine corp son had to put two locals in their place when he came for a visit. 2 against one and they still did not have a taste for a fight after disrespecting my sons girlfriend.
I have been here 4 years people, who can tell me what exactly it is we are all suppose to respect?
