Is there a good place to foil on the north shore of Oahu?
« on: December 22, 2020, 07:31:53 PM »
Iím flying to Oahu tomorrow and staying at the Aulani Disney resort thingy. Is there any spots up there to foil?  I got Honolulu dialed, but never spent time on the north shore.

Feel free to PM.

Thank you.

The Aulani isn't on the North Shore, do you mean Turtle Bay?

If you are at the Aulani, white plains beach park isn't too far away. Conditions will be epic tomorrow and at least pretty good for the rest of the week. That's where I will be spending my mornings all week. Most people foil off to the right in front of the cottages, but the far left past the fenceline can be fun too. Further down the road are some other spots that are more finicky and currently less officially accessible. PM if you want more info

If you are at Turtle Bay, you should make the drive around to Kahana Bay at some point. Its probably the premiere spot on the island when its working. You will never see so many foilers out at one spot. Inside Puena Point and Lanikea both can work depending on the day and the crowds.

Yes, if at Disney you are rocking that southwest Eva beach area. Tons of foil waves I hear. Find a sandy beach with a mushy wave and no one out and jam.

 Donít go North on the West coast without friends (local friends.)

The North Shore spot is Puena Point but itís busy like San O.

yup puaena point is the place BUT early morning only be outta there by 900ish thats when the surf schools start up and it gets choked with beginners and dangerous

if the waves are big thats pretty much your only choice till you you get to turtle bay works but i dont know if its open...and the east side has lots of spots too...kahana...kualoa ranch...theyre all pretty far from aulani though

if the waves are small...i.mean really small...go anywhere its foilable but NOT the main break at chuns...and NOT the main break at lanis...and absolutelynot haleiwa....they been having problems

if its really small and not windy usually in the mornings early .
.walls is the spot...google search kamani lane..its the next beach park kaena point side  from haleiwa...theres only 2.parki g spots  so you probably have to park along tthe road...its basically the inside part of avalanche..about a half mile offshore....suuuuuuper long rides can ride  aaaalllll the way to the beach if your legs can handle it....theres way too shallow reef right out front so walk 50 yrd left along the sand and thats where the deep channel starts...thats KaiBorgs home break so say hi...he house right across the street

absolutely googlt maps white plains beach...stay away from the main break right in front of the beach park..thats a no no...go way out to the far right is usually empty and all the other foilers go...or way out to the far left....stay out of the middle is for surfers only

also chek out bunkers...down the road from white.plains...end of coral sea road in front of the coast guard station....go in the morning afternoongets windy...even when the whole south side is flat bunkers usually still has something ...its a sandbar waaaay out at sea maybe a quarter mile offshore...google search..
nimitz covebeach....paddle out next to the jetty and go out to the right.
.dont jump off the jetty the rocks are nasty sharp..it looks like nothing from shore but if it evwn has a bit of whitewater its super good fun...can ride um all the way back to the beach but dont becauseclose in it gets super shallow super fast

dont even think about the west side..not worth it

Beasho

What was the report here?

How did it go?  Did you connect with any Zoners.  Not that we want to out anyone . . . . maybe you're making a video.

Things have been crazy since we got back but yes, it was a fun trip.  I didn't plan the trip and for some reason got it in my head we'd be staying on the north shore.  We did not, in fact, we stayed on the west side of the island.  Oahu has some really fun places to wing and foil.  Unfortunately,  I didn't a chance to shoot any footage.  I foiled 3 times and winged once in Oahu and then popped over to Maui and foiled there as well.  Maui was fun as always.  The spots near the airport are still some of the most fun waves I've ever foiled. 

All in all it was fun but not epic.
