Malaekahana Bay, Goat Island (Moku`auia Island) Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A short right- and long left-hand reef break with a long paddle-out. Strong currents and shifts in the reef make it a new experience to get used to—the reef plate pulls and pushes the water depth with each wave.
Looking out to Goat Island’s surf off Malaekahana Bay, there is no way of knowing exactly how smooth, hollow, or dangerous it is—at 800 yards, it’s just too far away. This seems to always make the water look better, and so you’ll find yourself paddling out and into some waves that might make you want to turn back. Best Boards: Shortboards; also longboards on small days. This chapter also includes a brief description of Seventh Hole, Kahuku Point, Turtle Bay, and Kawela Bay."
