The south shore is only 2miles long.. You can walk to all the breaks. If you had a longboard it would be a biotch to carry it all over.

It seems to me that the best south swells come in May and June. I don't remember much hitting the last few years few years in July and August but it takes quite the south swell for me to remember it. If you're here long enough you should get something that is very good by Florida standards but be prepared for flat spells.

The typical south swell will have beautiful conditions but be intensely packed and be rather inconsistent. The Waikiki breaks will be mostly long boarders, on the plus side many of them will be in Bikinis.

If you really want to surf go to Mexico.
Summertime in hawaii is way overrated.
lotsa wind slop chop, with a few days of unbelievable surf thrown in.
Like Kelly says May and June has the best potential for south side surf.

I mostly longboard I use to surf all the Town breaks...and I walked to 'em. Now, I moved back to my roots of the westside. I still walk to all the breaks here except fo' an ocassional hitch hike to some of da farther locations. I only shortboard when the time is right... usually heavy pitching barrels :D

I'm waitin' fo' my friend to call and let me know when the swells start to arrive in Town. There's 1 place in Town where you wouldn't believe it's Town. I'm not saying where, but here's a clue. No free parking :lol:

Have fun Eastcoaster :!:

If you have to stay in waikiki, try out publics. It's that outside left to the left of the sponge spot called the wall (when standing on shore). Breaks at pretty much any size, and the crowd isn't too nuts. Only thing you gotta watch out for is the coral heads.
North shore will most likely be flat in the summertime. You should still get up there if you can, and you might just find a rideable wave.

If you're looking at the Sheraton Cam... then you will be looking at Pops. Tha paddle out can be up to a third of mile offshore. Hope you got some paddle muscles.(to get you back to shore)

Florida guy,
If you can't find surf that suits your 6'3" when you get there, be open enough to learn to ride a longer board while in Hawaii. It's good to learn to ride all sorts of boards. Being a well rounded surfer will only enhance your surfing opportunities. As you may know a chest high day on the east is a flat day there so go searching when it's "flat"
