North Shore. This is a right hand wave with a reef break. A longer board is needed and it's a powerful wave (watch out for west peak) when in large surf. Advanced surfers only! It can get up to15 feet and can have a fun shore break. Positioning is the key to conquer this wave. It can also be pretty crowded. It has a sand and rock bottom. It's best from November to February and you can surf in board shorts all year round, the minimum water temperature is 20degrees.
