Birthplace of surfing?
« on: April 06, 2021, 09:16:00 PM »
So it has long been a goal of mine to visit the birthplace of surfing. To kinda pay homage to the sport that has given  so much to me  the question is where ? What break?  Is it. Canoes ?  queens ? Walls ? Publics? 
What are your Thoughts ?

I’ve always been under the assumption that the birthplace of “modern surfing” is Waikiki, (Queens and Canoes).

So   it  looks like itis going to happen.   BUT  I know Honululu is a mega crazy  city and  I dont really want to stay there.  What are some good places areas to stay on the other side of the island  with  far less crowds and crazieness. ?

Look at either the Lotus Honolulu or the Kaimana Beach Hotel (used to be called the Sans Souci). They are in a super quiet little pocket of Waikiki under Diamondhead, far from the madding crowd.  IMHO if you're going to surf Waikiki you'll be happiest in Waikiki, not windy Kailua or the north shore. And there's good surf in front of the hotels.

A nice time of year to visit for a surf as the swells will be mostly small to medium size with both the south as well as north/west swell directions coming in.

The north shore is very nice in the spring as the crowds are low and the surf accessible and consistent. Good trip.
