Bobo's is on the north shore of Kaua'i. Northshore - very near Ke'e Beach which is at the end of Haena road. Walking distance from Ke'e beach, or just park near Cannon's surf site and move down north. The land area fronting Bobo's surf spot used to be a nudist colony in the late sixties/early seventies - it was called Taylor Camp.

This surf site is named after Stanford Morinaka, aka: "Bobo Satomo". You must be a good goofy foot kamikaze surfer,like the guy that it was named after. Just stay deep and high in the tube. You could ride it backside, but you gotta be hot to do it.
It's a wicked place when it's big, and very shallow as the wave is breaking on the reef, maybe about six to eight inches deep.
It's a super hollow, fast tube ride. It's a goofy foot dream.
