First Time Surfing on Big Island - I rented a board across the street.  There are stairs down to the surf end of Kahalu'i.  The water was pretty clear so you can see a nice channel for paddling out without hitting any of the coral heads. I didn't surf over the

- My wife and I just came back from a week in Kona and we had a blast at Lymans.  It was our luck, but the SSW swell was running and we caught lefts all morning as they steadily built up in size.  A few nice overheads to end the session.&nb

big island boi - Damn all of those friggin tourists at hapuna... u can't really surf at 69 even though the only people in the water are snorkelers. But like banyans is awfully consistent and tourists don't Damn go in the water there. Kiholo bay has like no swimmers, and has pounders. Kahaluu is good when the rip current is good, just a bunch of retarded spongers, run em ovah. Just don't get pulled out past the church or u will be ridings rocks! Also, out past kawaihae there is sometimes a nice break. Just don't ride into shark bay or u are screwed...(u can always, always count on a nice tiger or hammerhead to greet you. Sometimes mahukona has gnarly swells, but they have death-ish undertow that will eat you AND your board. Opolu is the most difficult option for west/north shores, but it is rewarding. There is a secret trail from the south-western part of the runway at the airport that leads to what us haoles call "rock point". To get out, climb over the formation if eroding shore and jump into the water with your board. To get out, well, grab a ledge and pull yourself up. Forget about the board, its probaply broken. These are the best north-west swells.

Don't believe it! - There are some spots listed for the Big Island that say "all surfers". Don't believe it! There's some dangerous spots in that list.... Pohoiki's 3rd Bay & Bowls, Hakalau for starters. Almost nobody surf's 3rd bay and Hakalau is an extremely shallow stomper. BE CAREFUL

Southern Breaks in Winter? - I'll be staying in Naalehu later in Feb. '09. Can anyone offer me some advice for good waves and good vibes? Also, are there any places on the island to rent decent shortboards, or should I haul my boards with me? I'm travelling solo and am hoping to hookup with some locals who know the place well. Thanks.
