When thinking of Oahu’s surf, a few images come to mind. The throaty barrels at Banzai Pipeline. The dangerous, shallow reefs of Rocky Point. The large, gargantuan waves of Waimea Bay. But really, from the North Shore to Honolulu’s south coasts, there are surf spots geared toward all skill levels, from beginner to advanced. Check out these four surf breaks that make getting your feet wet fun and easy, as long as the forecasted wave heights are in the 1- to 3-foot range.

We strongly believe that one can not love surfing and not surf in Oahu at least once. We also believe that surfing in Oahu is magical and there is no other place like Oahu, the place where surf was born.
Oahu is a small island. It takes about 1 hour to reach any point on the island from any other point at most. Oahu is also very special: year around, somewhere on the island, one will always find surf of any given size and difficulty to match any surfer. There is a reason why surfing started in Hawaii!
Our company caters to beginners and intermediate surfers. As such we only work with guides who are able to understand and select the right surf location given our customer skills, experience level, and interest.
Oahu is magical. The diversity of the surf spots. The beauty of its water. The beauty of nature and the skills of its surfers are unparalleled. As such you can find in Oahu a practically infinite number of waves.
However Oahu’s beauty is only matched by its popularity: Oahu is a busy destination and while at times one will find breaks with nobody else, most of the time you will be in the water with 5 to 10 other surfers of various skills.
Water temperature is usually 76-81F (24-27C) and no wetsuit is needed for surfing.
Next to the hotel there are multiple locations:
1. Turtle Bay East is a local break that is usually small and not very crowded. It is a long reef wave mostly left and fairly close to the shore.
2. Turtle Bay West is a more popular break that is a shorter reef wave that is a little further and is just in front of the swimming pool.
3. Further on the North Shore depending on conditions one will find breaks like Chun’s Reef, Freddy’s and Pua-ena point, . These three breaks are surfer friendly and usually smaller then the general swell. They are good places to go if the swell is large.
4. On the other side if the swell is reasonable Laniakea and Ali’i offer reasonably deep and slow waves that allow intermediate surfers , or beginners if the swell is small, to have a lot of fun.
In Oahu the winds from the East usually dominate (they are called the trade winds). Therefore the spots on North Shore and South Shore are usually with off-shore or side shore wind. However at times the trade winds die and the east side surf spots become fun and extremely uncrowded.
