Honolua Bay - Maui Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This right-hand point break with an exceptional performance wall has been a world-famous break since 1961.Speed, a super bowl arena on the inside section, and a 600-yard ride make this a classic all-time wave. With its long rides and reputation as a fantastic tube, it’s a must-see surf spot.

When push comes to shove, there’s no better place to be than Honolua Bay waiting for the wave with your name on it—the one that says, I’m yours. Then you go, and the ride of a lifetime begins. This fast, awesome point wave is so long and neat that the swell lines are like dark-blue-flecked marble in a light blue sea. The curling barrel is a white-green cavern. Hang on in there and bite the bullet. On takeoff, it’s bombs away. The explosion behind you hammers your tail. The oncoming wall curls, and then gracefully breaks clean over your head. Now its pumping curl lines tube by the second, and you feel your feet lift up and fly."
