Well said - To the poster below, well said. I'm from O'ahu. The locals at this spot are cool, if you are. Just to give some perspective. Hawai'i surf spots are becoming exponentially more crowded as the years go on. Cut the locals some slack. Many bust their as*es just to be able to survive here because of the rising cost of living (this is homeland to native-Hawaiians and still a part of Polynesia, it's insulting that someone else must profit when we just try to survive here as there isn't enough open spaces anymore for us to live off the land like before, and most everything must now be purchased, albeit at insane prices, even for basic necessities)...and they just want some waves after work.Imaging seeing the spot you grew up at turn into a straight up circus everytime there is a swell...and it's getting worse every year. It is happening here more than anywhere else since we are considered the 'vacation-state' of the world, now (don't forget, this place was controversially annexed, most Hawaiians here voted AGAINST it...but of course, we can't cry over spilled milk and bring back the past, just trying to spread awareness). FRUSTRATING...to say the least. Don't be surprised if some locals just lose it...and don't take it personally, anyone. Tip: Please remember everyone...at ANY spot ANYwhere in the world...USE THE CHANNELS AND DON'T DROP IN. You should be safe and having fun if you do. Mahalo, Kalei

Fun spot, as long as you take it for what it is. - Im from England and Walls was a good base in which to get a tast of Hawain surf, however it becomes very overcrowded and just not fun if you stay in the water too long. There are good waves to be had if you go during the Summer swell, the locals were friendly as long as you treat them with respect.

don't underestimate walls - i just uploaded a bunch of pics of a nice 2-4 foot summer swell. hopefully these pics will be added here to wannasurf.com and do this underrated spot on the south shore some justice. try come to walls during a summer swell and you'll see for yourself how good these waves at this spot can be.
