If your staying in Lahaina or Kihei don't expect any surf it's hard enough to get any swell when it's in season. But you can always try Makena or Hookipa.

Where do you live? I'm sure it's not totally flat. I've had really good sessions out at kaisers when it's a foot. Try changing your skegs I have fcs. For days under shoulder high you should try G4 left and right skegs and a GX center. It really loosens up the board in small summer surf. On big days I use a G4 center a G5 left and right skegs. Practice makes perfect.

You really came at a bad time because town really isn't in season yet but you could try rockpiles to the left of bowls or anything in the kihio beach park are. Queens or the sand bar, but it's out of control there. I advice you to go to paradise or rockpiles. If you want to go surf country you should try puena pt. or Laniakea they're pretty mellow on the inside. Good luck.
