 Additional Information

Try to have fun in boring(safe) waves. On huge S swells it can get fun and a little more challenging. There is a break far out and to the W a bit; on a 2-4 ft forecast this break is great for SUP and shortboards (if you want to paddle that far). The less wind, the cleaner the break. Even if the forecast is no wind and no waves, it may still be worth it for a few clean sets that will come.
If you're on a shortboard, just wait for a decent set to come in. On a bad day these sets come about 20-30 min apart, and they are good for all kinds of boards.

Atmosphere

The atmosphere here is very relaxed and fun, and families come here a lot. There is a Military shack that offers rentals for most ages (under 18 need a parent to sign a waiver). Rentals are 5 bucks an hour. This is a great place to grill out because there are several pavilions and grills available for use.

General

If you longboard you'll have fun here, not too good for shortboards though. Probably the weakest wave on the Island. Have fun though. Gets packed after work is out and on weekends. Ho Bra!

White Plains Beach

Bumpy, mushy day today - The waves were a decent size today. The wind was blowing offshore pretty hard though so it was rough out there today. There was a crowd out today but it was so spread out because of the type of break white plains is so it wasn't too bad. C

- Coolest thing about the morning was the seal coming out of the water just as I was going in. I've seen the thing sitting around sunning before but I've never seen him come out like that. Other than that, the lineup was pretty bare and

Choppy - A very typical day at White Plains!  Went early for the Dawn Patrol with an established North East Wind and the Buoy report calling 5-6' swells we thaught it would be great....not so much.   However, as always any morning

First time surfing - First time surfing and did not catch any waves. In fact I did not even stand up. I was more focused on just staying on my board.

Awesome place to learn, gets way overcrowded - This is where I learned to surf and I do have to say it is very nice. I would always head down to the far right to get away from everyone and head out pretty far to get the waves to myself. I always like to go either early morning or later in the day to avoid the big crowds. I would tend to avoid this spot if you want a more secluded and a far less populated spot.

love it - i'm still a new surfer and i love taking my board out here. there are a lot of other beginners, so i'm not the only one falling :) plus the waves are really consistent and even with the number or surfers out there, there's plenty of room. i love catching one way out there and riding it pretty much into the beach

Great longboard and beginner wave. - It's very family friendly and easily accessable. The wave is kinda like Waikiki but with more beginners and more military. I surfed there for the four years I lived there while serving in the Army. I started surfing in San Diego,CA at age 14. So I didn't have any issues riding the waves at all. When it gets shoulder to overhead though it really get fun on any board...especially a twin fin fish. So have fun here and spread the aloha spirit.
