 Additional Information

Tumbo Land is arguably one of the best lefts on the West side of Oahu. You get a lot of speed off from take off to end. Drops are sometimes harsh but they're makeable. An ideal wave would be catching the wave from Hospitals, past Tumbo Land, all the way to Slippery Rock - an easy 80 to 100 yard long wave that bowls like a machine. Watch the reef though. It's really shallow here and you have to know how to take gas if you eat shit. There's a parking lot and showers so don't worry about being salty.

Atmosphere

Oahu's West side is well overlooked. The waves rock, and Tumbo Land is one of the many spots that break during the summer. During the winter the reef is totally covered with sand. During the summer, the reef is exposed, allowing swells from the west-southwest to show its beauty. There are many kids who love to slip n' slide on the reef, and lots of bodyboarders. Be respectful and mind you own. And most of all be patient. Expect drop-ins on the wave of the day. It gets pretty frustrating.

General

This spot is the shit. The reef is so slippery you can ride barrel on dry reef. No joke. It's so fun. Catch the spot when all three sections connect. It's epic. 3-5 feet is perfect

OUch - This place can EASILY crack your skull. Like Sandy's shorebreak almost (but makeable sometimes) onto REEF. No joke

By Locally unknown , 20-02-2007

You are straight up, surfnallover, howerver, to others... - To those who are not in the know, don't overlook RACE all together. To overlook someone's race is personal arrogance. Remember, many are proud to be of their 'race'. Each has it's own uniqueness. Treat everyone with respect, but don't COMPLETELY overlook what makes the world COLORFUL AND NOT GRAY. (not yelling, the caps are just for emphasis). Remember, those Hawaiians who still want to live off the land are NOT BUMS. Just because you don't completely understand natural island living doesn't mean there is more knowledge there than meets the common urban American eye. Respect All, and truly and respectfully converse with all :) ... Coming from a local's mouth... (abstract...yes, but I hope you all get the gist of this)

Idiots - You are both idiots. To bash someone because they're haole is as idiotic as the knucklehead who thinks his white ancestors conquered then taught ancient Hawaiians. The Hawaiian islands were not conquered by anyone but Kamehameha I. Liliokalani had the sense to avoid bloodshed but at a price. Give respect wherever you go/surf and don't tolerate low IQ'd people who still base their opinions on race.
