Off the Wall - Oahu

Off the Wall - Oahu Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This famous right-hand reef break surely has one of the best tubes in the world—at least if we’re to judge by the amount of Kodak film used by the lineup of photographers on the nearby wall. It works from 3 to 13 feet and is mostly a superfast tube right with the occasional cutback section.

One long walling swell hits the reef and jacks up, then breaks fast, almost closing out. Your angled takeoff is a nail-biting moment of pure adrenaline. It’s wise to have a quiver of boards with you at Off the Wall, this being the best insurance policy to escape its jaws. When your ride is hooked in deep, it’s getting dark, and the only way out is forward, don’t worry; just keep going. Of course, praying helps.

Best Boards: Shortboards and guns. This chapter also includes a brief description of Insanities."
