Go to Kapiolani Park right next to Diamond Head(Honolulu Hawaii). Drive on the road closest to the beach going towards Hawaii Kai. Start to make your way up around Diamond Head (beach side) right before you get onto the road turn right on the last right before the Diamond Head road. Then drive down that road and there will be a beach access.

This spot is not for inexperienced!!! On shallow days this spot will break a heavy right. Its like a mini Teahupoo but a right. It hallows out huge.

blown out - usually ugly anyway with the sideshores. its rare a big south with a good angle with the right tide and winds hit this area anyway.

radicals - Used to be owned by a rad dude named Nathan Wilbur, Radicals doesn't even exist anymore, hurricanes Iwa and Iniki did something to it so that it doubles up and closes out all weird. I surf that area a lot and I've gotten one good wave at radicals in the last ten years. It used to get super good but never over head high. Anywayz, radicals is gone R.I.P.
