- Rips / undertow
above all respect the locals or you will be hated. It is an insane paddle but it is worth it if you hit it at a good time.
nice relaxed atmosphere there are a few breaks near it.

hhheaavy - I'm from southern california, ventura area and we have no wave like this. the 500 yard paddle out was totally worth the insain "tunnels" or tubes that i got. starting off slow i sat down and out catching the sets that would swing wide and stay open. after i got the feel for that steep drop in i moved up a few peeks. i saw a set comin in and i grabbed the 2nd one. took off on the peek and and made the drop. tried to get tubed and it ended up slammin me in the head. hahah extremely fun because after a few tries i made the tube and and slopes out into a slow shoulder that you can rip! props to all the surfers i saw out there grabbing the monster set tubes that i would have pissed my pants droping into!!! respect
mahalo for letting me surf your beautiful island. i'll never forget the view of the crystal blue waters and looking back at the increadable green cliffs lit up by the sun.

Tunnels is NOT worthy by Traveler - Stayed on Kauai and this wave is NOT worthy. I stayed here for a month and Kauai gets slammed with Big stormy swells. This place takes too much effort, long paddle out, blown out, i had a hammerhead shark cruising below my board. North Shore Kauai spots are not great as people claim. TO me, only the point at Hanalei. Me, a Honolua Bay loca.
