- get your facts straight,
stay away from this place,
it is megga dangerous,
watch of for the reef hustlers.

Hale Nalu recommended - The surf is great, rented my eqipment from Hale Nalu surf shop and the service was helpful, they also let me know the rules of the area so to speak- with safety as a priority :) Thanks!!!

3 different waves - It looks like you're talking about 3 different waves. Makaha is the right off the rocks which breaks in a South swell, Makaha Bombie which is a peak that breaks in big E-S swells and Little Makaha which needs a North swell and breaks inside the other 2
