By 5 rocks local , 23-12-2004

bowls - nah, 5 rocks is way longer than bowls and noone surfs it, maybe because of the 25 foot tiger shark. sick 100 yard rights and lefts off a A frame peak. Okinawa goes orfff

By American ripper , 09-12-2004

Bowls is way longer than 50-70 meters - Bowls is 150 feet? On a bad day maybe! The way it wraps around the corner and breaks into the bay is awesome Dude. It reminds me of Santa Cruz or Blacks or Newport. And most people don't know that you can surf it dead low tide.oops, did put that on the worldwide web. Oh yeah, I rip.

By ex-Oki-expat , 06-08-2004

Quick Summary of Bowls - It's a left - I lived there for 8 years and surfed it for about 5 of those years. Bowls is essentially a left, as shown in the photo you guys published. The break gets it's name because the reef there forms a small bowl (you can fit only about 4-5 surfers in it comfortably, though you might find 20 sitting there at times) that jacks up fast over a very shallow section of reef, then breaks left for maybe 50-70 meters on a good day. It is a fast, relatively hollow ride over mostly worn-down reef with some nasty live coral too.
