 Additional Information

Sandy's is the host of Gas chambers, Middles, Cobbles, and Pipe littles. The map attched to this web page has them slightly off place. Sandy's is located "according to the attached map" in between where it says "Hanauma Bay and Gas".
Sandy's is and extreme shore break second to none on Oahu.
Use extreme caution when body surfing or sponging in this spot. Even small days can become rough. If your out to surf Pipe littles is left ocean view to middles and the shore break. Depending on the size of the waves you can go either left or right. Pipe littles does have plenty small kine rocks around so be aware.
Middles is pure body boarding and sponging alike. My opionion the break does not always break in the exact same spot so but you know it will break on the shore. You get great small kine tubes at middles..it closes out quick though. Gas chambers is off to the right closer to the rocks and blow hole. Usually plenty of rights off of gas chambers but sometimes you can break left. Free parking right off the beach. Usually Da Local Chef has his cooking truck in the parking lot if your hungry for a plate lunch.

Atmosphere

On weekends Sandy's is a combination of Locals and tourist alike. Life guards are present at this beach and on high surf advisory days they are patrolling the beach keeping tourist out of the water as well as people whom don't know what they are doing. Sandy's is the number 1 beach in Hawaii for accidents. Usually from tourist, military and locals alike fracturing ther necks due to the extreme shore break. Make sure you know your limitations before attempting to go out on "big" days. There is a restroom, phones and shower heads located off the beach area.

Rite on matti_i - You got it right, buddy. Most of the time, it's localism infused with the fact that many spots are getting PACKED now, so the situations may or may not be more heated than at other places in the world.

Everyone, just be cool and chances are you'll be treated the same. I grew up here and am white, and thus... I know what I'm talking about here.

- I go to sandys on a daily basis when theres a south swell. in the past two months went like every day. I have alotta haole friends that go there and they rip... well some are professionals. point being doenst matter what color your skin is if you drop in and I get hurt or close to hurt... someones getting their lights punched out... in the matter of fact saw it the other day. And dont correct my grammar becuase this aint a professional paper or email i dont giva f*^&

? - Photos 37, 38 and 39 on page 4 have me confused. Is that wind blowing offshore? If so where is the swell coming from? Must be a south or north swell wrap.
