Waimea Shore Break - Oahu Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The ultimate big-wave beach break with pounding lefts, this is a bodyboarder’s extreme wave to ride, nightmare or dream. It's a grinding left-hand beach break for only the most advanced bodyboarders. Best Boards: Bodyboards. This chapter also includes a brief description of Elephants, Marijuana's, and Alligator Rock.

This wave throws, it doesn’t crumble, and there are no mushy sections—just enormous artistic curves. To ride here, you need to take off with a big grin on your face and the determination of a downhill racer. It’s almost impossible to make the drop, vaulting past double-up sections and vast echoing hollow tubes. So you may as well smile now, because this wave will do its best to wipe the grin right off your face."
