Honls - I lived in Kona for 2 years and surfed this place almost every time there were waves. I surfed it from waist high dribblers to solid 6 ft and draining. The right was dominated by a guy named Eric Okahoshi. Don't know if he is still around, but he pretty much ruled the place.... Very good surfer. when good the right is a critical takeoff followed by a fairly lined up section. Tubes on the right are not as frequent. In my opinion, the left is the better wave as it has a VERY hollow section for barrels but it is a shorter wave. If you sit on the peak on a real swell,do not fall off on the takeoff because you will eat reef without fail. There used to be a gnarly rebar wedged into the point of the reef.

Leo Carillo - Laughing at the Leo comment, too funny. I'm from Malibu, surfed Hunnels on my only trip to Big I in '85 when I was 14, was only waist high but I had the rights all to myself and really dug the wave, would have liked to surf it a little bigger, beautiful spot as are all spots I saw/surfed in Kona, I remember it being ultra shallow. I visited my friends in Hilo, we drove down to Drains where I got my ass handed to me before I made it to the lineup...by the waves not the locs, they were cool. I wanted to come back and give it another try, was bummed when it got buried. Left Points was sweet too, Kaimu...that whole area was paradise. I hear all those spots got toasted. What a shame.

- Whoever wrote that honls is overrated should shutup bacause they don't even know what their talking about..Probably don't even know where the place is. I surfed this place in the summer time, low tide, and barreling conditions.. This was my first time surfing this place originally from the east side, and got slammed on the reef.My board has a couple of dings on it and in half an hour two other guys broke their boards, some hitting the reef as well. Honl's has now become one of my favorite places to surf... Back to the idiot, this ones for you!Why would you leave a message like that saying something ir overrated... Your definitely not a local and have no right to say that.. "Anyway, watch out and respect the locals" "Don't drop in andn think your a ripper"
