Somewhat secluded from view, the access is through Barber's Pt. Head towards the ocean, and then travel west until you pass the Coast Guard Hangar. There is a small park there with facilities and fisherman. Park there, and paddle straight out from the jetty itself.

The wave itself won't break until it's head high or bigger. It breaks with a lot of force, and is occasionally hollow. It can provide long long rides if you're into speed runs down long, powerful walls.
It's kind of a long paddle-out, but that helps keep the kids away. The regulars are usually older, and laid back. No localism here.
Conditions are best first thing in the morning, and if the wind gets on it, it will get all choppy and junky.

This place got its name fr:shallow reefs brah. - If you wipeout over the razor-sharp reefs here, you'll get a free "razor-cut" style of hair-cut, + hopefully not lose the skin off your nose brah. Much mahalo brah-lo!

This places cranks - Friggin place cranks. When it hits 6 - 8 plus, it feels a bit like Sunset. I've even caught it at 10 -12 on freak swells. You don't know you're on the south shore. Steep and powerful takeoffs. The paddle outs can be tough if 1 wave hits you. You just about have to paddle all the way out on the left or right if that happens. Once you get comfortable with the peak, the take off is absolutely hana hou.I saw many men in grey suits out there. One time I had one coming at me and I had to take off or else. He would have had no problem snatching me right off the wave. His whole body was shaking and he was 1 arms length away in the face of the wave. I was more than happy when the wave broke and I proned out on my 9'6" gun. I paddled straight in and I was the only one surfing that day. I saw 2 body boarders heading out as I was in the small lagoon. They thought I was kidding when I told them "Don't go out today, the big Manu is out there and he is not happy". But they figured it out seconds later when they saw me stoking by as fast as my arms would go.Damn Heineken beer tasted good that day when i got in.

Looking for Ricky Bell - Your knowledge of Swabbies tells me you're for real...... which is much more than I can say for some of the others who "think" they know about Swabbieland.Went to school w/a Ricky Bell. He also had a brother named Mike. I considered them really good friends. Might you be that Ricky?I still consider myself an Ewa Beach boy even though I've moved away. Try to get back a few times a yr. Its changed so much. Johns, Coves and Chicken Creek might be destroyed thanks to a new marina being built in the area. It looks like Shark Country should be alright. I'll look for your response and than give you my email so we an "talk story".
