Turn right off of Kuhio Hwy into the Princeville neighborhood, follow the road about 2 miles almost all the way to St. Regis Hotel, just before you get to St. Regis there is a small 10 car parking lot off to the right, take the trail down the fence line but be very careful because when you start to head down the cliff the stairs have been slowly eroding through out the years due to mostly heavy rain, follow the trail to the beach and paddle right out off the small beach, be careful at low tide, you have to pick your way through the coral heads paddling in and out... Good Luck!

"anonymous" and "look u idiot" - Whatever, ive surfed this spot by myself and the locals were cool as hell. You are making your natives look bad. A wave is always a pleasure, its the people out of position that get worked on, anywhere period. I doubt rookies are on here looking for spots they can't surf. Chill out. BTW - does anyone know where i can rent a Toobs Bomber for a week in Kauai?
