 Oahu

USA, Hawaii

Oahu is, with the other Hawaiian Islands the home of surfing. Beyond this, it is also the home to some of the worlds best and most famous surf spots. The North shore is packed with familiar names, Pipeline and Backdoor, Off the Wall, Log Cabins, Sunset and Waimea Bay. When the big winter swells come in, the worlds best surfers head here. The south of the island is also a surfers dream with many many class breaks. Unfortunately, due to its image and consequent popularity, Oahu is one of the most crowded and 'localised' places to surf. Show a bad attitude, and you may not even want to get back into the water.

spring season surfing? - hey everyone! can anyone tell me what swells I can expect for surfing between may and june on the south shore? thx a lot.

realty check - i just want to straighten out a few facts about haoles on the north shore: 1) first guy to surf pipeline- haole. 2) first guy to surf waimea-haole. 3) first guys to charge north shore- haole. 4) 9 time world champ- haole. lets face it. there are a few good hawaiin surfers out there, but most of the locals were, and are to lazy to really take the initiative to pioneer big waves on the north shore. wolfpak? what a joke. bunch of iced out gangsters . so what if they know martial arts. who won the eddie this year? haole. im not racist or anything, just pointing out some facts for all you proud hawaiins out there

car pooling in Oahu - thanks for the encouraging words Quinn. It is nice to think that Oahu is not a Surfers Paradise Lost like so many other places I have seen. Sure I have even been to Sunset and I did not find it too bad. I did not try Pipe though. Anyways, surfing crew I am thinking of returning once again to Rainbow Country and am looking for any people looking to carpool with me from Waikiki to the North Shore and other surfing spots. Maybe in December and definitely for 2 months. Tourists and locals are welcome in my car especially chicks as long as you throw in for rental and gas hahahahaha mbirrer@hotmail.com
thanks
Mike
