Yikes - I went here 3 times in my life. Good fun, was like 2-4 local and rippable...but mostly cloudy turquoise water (beautiful, but sometimes can't see feet.) Urchins and others are numerous because of the discharge. Sharks are everywhere around here because it's location is close to the SW tip of O'ahu.

Fun, but won't be back. Too spooky! I'll surf with the crowds (comfort) at Tracks. For reals.

- on a good day the waves are super hollow and dredging the rides are short but consistent and the paddle back out to the lineup will take you less than 30 seconds also beware there are landlords out there when you don't see the turtles anymore that's your q to pack it up oh ya i forgot its a goofy footers wave you can go right but the lefts rule.
