No surfing is allowed in between the two lifeguard towers, but it's always crowded there anyways. Go past all the beach campers and families grilling, park right before the Air Force Base gate.
The waves really are small, but a good place for beginners to learn to paddle, duck dive, maybe catch a few, and without having to worry about getting all tore up by coral and rocks.

8 foot. what??? - I grew up surfing here. then moved my way to moana bowls in the summer and country in the winter. never seen bellows over 3 ft faces. but i decided to go there to teach son to surf. and it was 8 to 10 ft. the protective outer reef must have been double over head. since then still haunt seen it past 3 ft

one star.... - bellows is an average bech break that doesnt get many waves cuz its protected by an outer reef, hence the one star rating, what do you expect? go back to florida if you think it sucks here, one less tourist kook we have to deal with. we live in the surf mecca of the world, good luck growing some balls in florida.

agree with rusha - Im from Florida too, but the ocean and hawaiians deserve alot more respect than that. You oviously didnt go anywhere else while you were there. You pry wouldnt make it out at most of the spots.
