Beginner Surf Spot by Turtle Bay Resort« on: November 13 2005 14:11:00 »
I was wondering if there is a good beginner break by Turtle Bay Resort for longboards. Any other good beginner breaks with more sandy bottoms and less reef bottoms on the Oahu's North Shore where I can stay out of local's way? What about campgrounds where I can just crash in my van? Any info is appreciated.

Unfortunantly there isn't you kinda picked the wrong time of the year for begginers at the north shore. We just had a really good 10-15 ft. swell and another big one is on it's way. You could try town it might be good. You camp anywhere on the north shore till the cops pull up.

Thanks for the info. But isn't there a small wave area right in front of or beside the resort? I'm just going off what I read in a magazine.

Yeah of course when it's small but when it gets big it's big every where if you are already here you should jump in the water before wednesday a swell is heading our way with waves up to 10-15 ft plus (faces).

That makes sense. Couple more questions, then I'll be done. What about any bodyboarding places that have decent waves, but I won't get my ass kicked. And isn't the Vans Triple Crown going on soon; and if so, where is a good place to watch the pros. And lastly, knowing that the waves are getting bigger this time of year, any recommendations on Kauai mellow surf spots? Thanks again for the info. Much appreciated.

You could try out sandy's on the east side or off the wall next to pipe (that's a really good wave I love off the wall). The vans triple crown will be at haleiwa then sunset then pipe. Kauai has some really good spots, I've never been there so I wouldn't know but bruce and andy came out of kauai so how bad can it be. The triple crown is going to start this big NNW swell, some time this week maybe.
