Foursquare Tips

  • RIP AI
  • Sit down and watch the magic
  • Made of 3 reefs in increasingly deep water, no matter the swell size, the reef churns out deadly powerful and heavy waves over a jagged coral reef. It is home to the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing.
  • Not for the amateur weekend warrior surfer or for that matter even a "good" surfer. This wave is for the elite, not only because waves power but also they dont like kooks, too dangerous to play here.
  • Best on a NNW swell at 6-10 feet. Experience surfers only.
  • Even if you ain't good enough to surf, the break is close to the beach and makes it a perfect spot to watching!
  • You won't find waves like these anywhere else in Hawaii
