surfed hawaii twice. once in february and once in june. south shore is great in june . i surfed at waikiki had some good waves all week. i am not an expert but thought some of the waves were pretty big. maybe too big for a beginner like me. some maybe 7-8 feet high. wiped out bad afew times.thought they were very long ride. rent a board at KOA surf shop on koa ave (100$/week including 24hour access lockup ), walk40 seconds up Uluniu ave to Kalakaua Ave on the beach and start paddling. there are many other spots to surf on south shore but will have to rent a car.. stayed at waikiki resort hotel. cheap, clean, 1 block from surf.south shore sucks in winter time, have to go to north shore

What size board do you recommend. I have an 8 foot mini mal. Should I take it or should I leave it at home and just rent a board.

hey jeff,i highly doubt that they were 7-8 feet high. waikiki gets up to 12 feet, but during the summer, never past five. it just looks bigger when you're paddling out.

do they have sharknets on waikiki?

no shark nets. also, waikiki can get tremendous size, 7 footers are definately available during the summer, or larger! Years ago, Duke Kahanamoku rode a thirty footer for quite a long distance on the south shore. Actually, to be fair, it was Castles he started out at and ended up at Queens (i think), over a mile. And used boards are probably the cheapest in the world on Oahu, they have so many. Get 'em brah!
