RE: is surf on south shore of oahu good for begginers in winter« Reply #1 on: November 15 2005 23:11:00 »
By whose standards. I'm not cutting you down or anything but in hawaii I'm considered an intermediate surfer (don't mean to brag but I surf 10-12 Pipe). We just have higher standards here because of the surf. In the winter town is mostly flat, but if you long board it's not that bad I guess, I don't know.

If you know where to look...(and I'm definatly not telling anyone) you'll find good wrap around swells from the north. I would say that they are surfable for a beginning short boarder but they're usually very shallow and sharp. The biggest problem a beginner is going to have is not the size of the waves but the fiercness of the people.
