Mele Kalikimaka me ka Hauʻoli Makahiki Hou, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the North Shore Surf Girls!
The Ultimate Cheat Sheet On North Shore Beaches, or what beaches are best for having fun surfing in the sun.
In the Winter months the North Shore surf can be large and dangerous, so it’s critical if your not a surfing expert to have a North Shore Surf Girl instructor show you the ropes if you want to learn to surf. Other then learning to surf with a certified surfing instructor, it’s best not to get in the water on the North Shore when the surf is big, if you must go to a life guarded beach on the North Shore and talk to the lifeguard BEFORE you attempt to go in the water. In the Summer most of the beaches are very safe as the water is rather calm, with the exception of a few exposed reefs…Waimea Bay is a favorite of both locals and visitors, it has lifeguards and a comfort station.
1. Learn to surf and surf everyday you are here.
2. Watch the sunset every evening.
