Atmosphere

Don't drop in on anybody. ALso, if you wipe out on the take off, immediatly paddle to the channel. I learned the hard way and got finned in the calf.

save banyans - Save Banyans! Developers are looking to put a breakwall in the bay and build a 6 story condo development that would: 1) ruin public access and 2) ruin this beautiful wave. Stop development on the kona coast. Stop destroying beautiful places with developments. Do your part, save banyans.

Company: Wellness With Aloha (WellnessAloha) - Its so great to hear that the island of hawaii are becoming so popular around the world, particularly when it comes to life wellness.healing retreat hawaii
I think the island itself,has the capacity to give wellness to every tourist because of the beauty of the island. The beaches, the culture of the island and other amenities that the island has.These are the things that will give attraction to every tourist that somehow when they experience the real beauty of the island hawaii they can relax and release all the stress in there life.

banyans at 5ft+ - surfed last 2 days visiting. nice overhead bombs. at the point line-up they suck out over the rocks so you have to know what you're doing. inside and middle break are easier and still get nice lefts. watch the rocks at low tide. definitely best at mid to high tide. falling tide kills it.
