 Additional Information

Some of the longest lefts and rights that I have ever ridden have been at this break. If you can gain access by boat and more just inside the airport jetty you have the runway break that starts at 3-5' and stays small or you have the reef just the other side of the narrow channel that starts at 3-5' and holds to huge. This spot offers a litle pleasant fun for anyone who can get there on a solid South Swell!

One's the break next to the Runway jetty is All time if the conditions line up perfect. Longest barrels I've had on Oahu other than select country spots. BUT!! 100 factors have to come together for that, and out of 5 years and every south swell I've seen it like that 3 times. One's holds to pretty big 8' or so but only on mid to high tide. other wish it breaks outside on the 2nd reef and you just get a huge white wash that comes through. super fun wave though very long. If there is light and variable winds and a 6' south/south west head there other wise it's gonna be blown out and not fun.

Two's is the break out side on the other side of the hickam harbor channel. It's a good long left and will hold to 10'. HUGE!! BUT. there cant be any wind at all if you want it good. more power and bigger wave but not as high performance due to it not really standing up more of a big musy wave than anything else.

Atmosphere

The longest wave that I have ridden in Hawaii was at this break! It is my favorite spot on the South Shore because no tourist ever come, and the localism is non-existant. Mostly experianced military surfers and some very friendly locals!


Very friendly people yes... experincied military surfers NO!! just a bunch of military KOOKs that get in your way and are dangerous to everyone else on good days. I'm military and that is the only thing bad about the spot. the KOOKS... but if your good you just surf around them.

good spot if all the factors come to together!!

First timers - Went out for a pre work session with a couple of guys from work.  It was Adams' first time out!  We ran the mile long path next to the runways to get out there as the sun was coming up.  The waves were coming in at shoulder to over

Advisory level - The waves in the channel were coming in shoulder to overhead & clean but disorganized.  Scott and I hit it up for a post work session and caught some of the biggest and fastest waves that he has ever ridden.  We had just got&n

Not worth it - Well thanks to paddle boards not the place is overly crowded in the morning. anyway very fickle spot, mostly just a drop and mushy the rest of the way. For me best is the rights close to the jetty, they can hold up with the wind, but still not a quality wave, just a place to get away from the crowds.

- longest lefts and rights on the island? You sound like a kook military surfer to me. Believe there are way better spots than this one.

Ya - This place is so friggen fickle it shouldnt even be listed on here. This place used to be quiet and kook free but now since you exploited it here on this site that show is over. Thanks A hole for posting it. May the Tigers feast on your ignorant arse.
