Surf on Oahu is the best I’ve ever known. I couldn’t imagine that it is better, more consistent somewhere else on this blue planet. Maui, Big Island, Kauai and all the Hawaiian islands have great surf… but, I think nothing beats Oahu for consistency and the number of great breaking wave spots around the island.
Waikiki has a very consistent 1-2 feet breaking near daily. It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s great fun as you figure out how to ride a surfboard. You need one of the big bombs to ride them, because the waves come slow and steady. Here, a woman takes her 22 month old infant out for a ride on the gentle surf.
Hawaii’s surf has something for everyone – big wave riders, and little wave riding keikis.
