you can park right on the side of the road. this is a great break for everyone. i love it
there are actually 3 waves here. 2 are lefts, and the other is a left and a right. this wave can get really heavy on a big swell. the best is a solid 3-4 foot backside swell. have fun.
its one of my favorites!

Japan? - What the hell does all that have to do with Olawalu? Any way, it's a really fun wave and often breaks when the swell is really small at other spots. Gets bowly on a bigger swell and barrels are definitely possible. Can be offshore when other Lahaina breaks start to get blown.

to the person who is taking about Japan... - Huh??? Ridiculous. Ignorant. Uninformed.
