 Additional Information

Legally you can't surf the place. Body surfers only - thats what the sign says. But if there are no body surfers out, it is a super fun wave. hollow rights - and heaps of sweet little barrels.

If there are bodysurfers out you can kind of sit on the left that breaks off of it (pretty shity wave) but pick off the really deep rights.

Atmosphere

Point Panic is my favorite spot: I've had no problem with anybody there, body boarders, surfers, sharks, or turtles included. Everybody seems to work the line-up so no one is really getting in anybody's way. Drive down Ward past John Dominis (restaurant) park, walk left to the stairs and I'll see you out there. Have fun, even if you have scales, a shellback, some crazy-ass shark eye and a set of fangs. Paddle-out on a long board then body surf. Life's too important to take seriously

Big South Swell - Waves were great, there was a long lull but when the sets came in they were just almost perfect.  This spot breaks so nice and it is great for Bodysurfers.  It is a one-of-a-kind spot.  There is a law at this break "for Bodysurfer

Crowds - Crowds are bad, but they're just worse when we're lame to one another. So long as we're respectful to one another there shouldn't be an issue body-surfer body-boarder, surfer, shark whatever .

Body surfing - Great body surfing wave! The rest of the island is for surfing (I surf too) so go anywhere else! Attitude won't get you anywhere.

Chris - That post by soriano that grew up near pp was beautiful. If everyone had that attitude out in the water everyone would have more fun. So it's bodysurfing only, who cares, there's about 1 break every 1/4 mile from honolulu to hawaii kai, so chill out and have fun.
