Surf Spot Details
25th - 30th January 2015
On Oahu's North Shore near the small town of Hale'iwa there is our surf spot: Pua'ena Point!
across the Haleiwa a harbour from Haleiwa. Inside the point as the name
suggests. Long walling right handers wrap around the point and provide
friendly long rides. Puaena Point in Oahu is an exposed reef break that
only works when conditions are just right. Summer in particular tends
to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast.
Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the best swell direction
is from the northwest. A reef breaks right. Often Crowded. Beware of
urchins, rocks and pollution. It can be a good spot for beginners when
the waves aren't too high. Surfing lessons take place here. But when
the surf is way up, it's for experts only. Most surfers enter the ocean
from a small sandy beach before reaching Pua'ena Point.
