Surfing in Kauai

« on: February 27 2005 15:02:00 »

I am getting married in Kauai on May 29th... will be there for a week and then to Oahu for 2 days. I have been surfing for 14 yrs but only in TEXAS! What type of waves can I expect in Kauai during beginning of June? Where would the best place be to rent a 6"4 board etc and best place to surf?. My soon to be wife wants me to surf everyday when the waves are up because after I get married I will be far away from the beach when I move so I need to get all I can.
               Thanks so much!

I am going to Kauai also in Late March early April.  When you are there there will be mainlt south swells so go to the South Shore and you will probabaly get some good waves.  Popoi beach area is a good place to stay.  good luck.

how about mid April?  Does Kauai have good surf at that time?  Should I focus on the north or south shore?

man, if you are on  your honeymoon, then you should NOT be surfing.  What's wrong with you?  do your bride and then do her again.  If you have any energy left for surfing, you must be doing something wrong.  Tell you what, YOU go surfing and I will take care of the lttle missus for you.  Then everyone will be smiling!  See? Hawaiians are very nice people, just like they say in the travel books.

"do your bride and then do her again"

What does one do the other 23 hours and 55 minutes?

Kauai has little to no surf. The waves there are usually small and the locals will catch every one of them. Stay away! Not samrt to go there to surf Poipu or anyplace else. Lots of water hazards....sharks, urchins, sharp coral, jelly fish....tons of sharp rocks. Kauai isn't for surfing.

You can tell the forum was mostly written by paylintarded Hawaiians because of illiterant rants! In front of my gal Charo's house we can surf the left at Hanalei, paddle inside to PineTrees beachbreak or go to the point when it's up- the locals go up the Wailua River to water their hemp at noon, so line-up is open. Usually the poor natives are drung until evening glass-off, so go for it! ps- been here as a firefighter for many years and never get hassled as a haole- just get some black trunks and get a bad quetzoacoatl ink on your arm!

when you say "illiterant," do you mean "illiterate?"
