Get ready for the 5th Annual Butterfly Effect Maui, which takes place on Saturday, May 7 at Ho‘okipa Beach Park.

The butterfly effect, founded by professional windsurfer Tatiana Howard, unites women in their passion for the ocean and healthy living through a non-competitive downwind, five-mile ocean adventure and beach cleanup.

"It has been a dream come true to launch The Butterfly Effect on Maui, then take this event around the globe," said Howard. "My goal is to inspire all female water enthusiasts to nurture their relationship with the ocean and each other. This will help towards ensuring intergenerational sustainability of our pristine ocean environment for our future keiki to enjoy."

The day begins at 8 am. with a shoreline beach cleanup and native plant maintenance project with Community Work Day and Friends of Ho‘okipa. (Check in at Green Banana Cafe in Paia). Then instructors from Paia Yoga will lead an oceanside yoga session to prepare for the downwind ride at 11 a.m.

Female stand-up paddlers, windsurfers, kitesurfers and paddlers of all levels are invited to participate, although Maui's north shore is considered an advanced water sport location. The ride concludes at about 2 p.m. at Kanaha Beach Park with another beach cleanup and park beautification project.

Participants are also invited to a fashion show and closing ceremony at Thee Salon in Paia at 6 p.m. followed by an after party at Charley's in Paia at 9 p.m. with deejay Jay P ($10 cover charge).

Register for the event at Flatbread Pizza in Paia on May 5 between 5 and 7 p.m. The event is free, but a $20 donation will get you a goodie bag from sponsors, including an event T-shirt, raffle ticket, VIP entry to the fashion show and a free admission and drink ticket for the after party at Charley's.
