just trying to help you out on some of my surf breaks for the last 20 years. shark infested surf breaks include, point panic, kewalos, flies/(incinerators), silva channel, north beach hammerheads, which really do breed here. A couple other big spots on the north shore from silva channel to hammerheads are playgrounds, rockwarriors and fujis. all spots are a screaming left and right over a shallow reef bottom. huge on a WNW swell and a NW swell. probably the less crowded surf breaks on the island. I wonder why?
enjoy those secret breaks.

no s*&t sherlock - Funny,I surfed the place the year the bouy ripped off the reef, and Larry Bertleman stepped off his board from the top of a swell and onto the 25 foot cannel marker. Ive seen bowls look like medium sized pipe so many times, it's not funny. I'm from the north shore, but town can easily hold it's own. Anyone who doesn't know that is not from this aina.

NOT my friend ...( Frikkah! ) - I can't believe the "waikiki piss" guy would dis the south shore. This fool obviously has not caught real "town" at all. Unbelieveably great waves when it is on. WIDE variety of good breaks. When "bowls" is working, it rivals some of the best waves in the world. And it DOES get heavy! Training grounds for the likes of Gerry Lopez, Ho brothers, etc. ... countless other excellent surfers. In all likelyhood, the local crowd wouldn't let you get your share (seems like) so you gotta say town's bad. Might have been small when YOU were there, but just as well...you don't deserve good town. (only one kick inna ass!). Locals got to put up with tourists all summer...then deal with fools who think they can walk all over the people who live there. many of these folks have to pay megabucks to live in a place where they grew up...where they are from...and they are getting pushed out of their ancestral homes ( while spoon-fed punks from all over travel to "prove themselves"). ...you guys aren't proving anything except that you are spoiled and disrespectful. wise up!

Slightly Off - This place doesn't hold 12 feet, that's for sure. It closes out at about 4. Not to mention that big gray shape I saw cruising through a wave last time I was there. I'll pass!
