The best place to fuel up on after a surfing lesson is Haleiwa Joe’s  it has  great food, service and a view of Puaena Point  where you just learned to surf across the bay from the front lanai.  Haleiwa Joe’s also has a fun sports bar that is frequented by surfing legends.  Happy hour  is from 4:30 – 6:30pm on week days and from 10:00pm to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.  Menu options range from hamburgers to lobster and fresh fish.  My favorite meal is the seared Ahi and the burnt caramel macadamia for dessert.
