 Additional Information

You really have to love PP. Awesome spot. The traditional takeoff zone is a left and is often croweded. There are three different belts of surfing here. The far outside left, the middle, and the inside for groms or those just learning. You'll likely see Sunset Suzy or another class in session there. When it gets big, I like the rights from out out the Cheese Grater rock. You can get totally stoked from here and I surf a 10-11 and even a 12 foot gun outside PP. The spot is called incinerators actually but most call it Outside Puena Point. You just have to make sure it is big enough (10 foot faces plus) in order to make it around the cheese grater rock. Otherwise, keep the rock to you immediate left and make very sharp rights. If you decide to face the crowd on the outside left, prepare for Malibu drop-in's and some bumps and bruises. Bring some quick fix for your ride. Weekends are really bad especially when everywhere else is huge.

Atmosphere

Only goes off when its big everywhere else on the North Shore. Always a little smaller than other North Shore spots. Lots of surf schools teach lessons here.

not good any more!!!!!! - Pua'ena is not good anymore! It is owned by SUP surfers!!!!!! Plus there are a lot more sharks than before, due to the shark tours!

By Anonymous , 12-08-2010

Sharks- always been there, always will - I think someone mentioned sharks earlier and boats offering shark tours- well, anywhere near harbors (and on Oahu) has sharks. Puaena Pt. has hammerheads sitting in the channel all the time; take a dive if you're out and you might see them. But sharks- there's always sharks.

By K. Douglas, Haleiwa, Oahu , 23-10-2006

Sharks at Puaena Pt. - Be informed. Pua'ena Point is just outside Hale'iwa Boat Harbor. It is a fun break. It can be awesome when it gets big. Due to the start-up companies running their "Shark Tour" boats in and out of the harbor all day long, there are increasingly more and more sightings of sharks following the boats back into the harbor area. Additionally, paddlers have reported sightings around the green harbor buoy (closest buoy to the surf break).
