For most of the pro surfers on the North Shore, Summer is the time to head South, either to Waikiki or Bali, but for us hard core locals leaving the North Shore for any reason is minimized. So since it’s well claimed, Goat Island in the Summer is the best spot on the North Shore for surfing.
1. Goat Island – pros and cons – waves every day, bathroom w/ showers – onshore winds most days, long paddle out.
2. Chun’s Reef – pros and cons – super small waves daily, lifeguard – crowded.
3. Malekahana – pros and cons – close to shore – showers – onshore winds most days.
