Good place to go when its 5foot+ , breaks usually to the left, but sometimes right, can get very heavy and powerfull when large swells hit 10+ft and up. Try to not ride the waves too close to shore, itll get shallow and dangerous very fast. Also, watch out for the huge amounts of cables in the water. Apparently many years ago when the county built the Kolekole bridge, they accidentally dropped alot of heavy duty steel construction cables into the water and didnt clean it up. Some people have gotten a foot or armor tangled up in the cables down deep in the water.
Sharks have been seen once in a great while, but comon.... this is the Hilo side, sharks are everywhere right? Have fun! ^^
Good place to go to BBQ, swim by the waterfall and surf at.
