Surfing in Oahu« on: August 02 2007 07:08:00 »
Sup everyone! I am a bodyboarder from Los Angeles and highly respect the Hawaiian culture and understand the ettiquettes of the water. I have been doing it for quite a while now, I am decent in it, but to be honest I will not be able to handle Big breaks like Pipe, so I wont even try to make the attempt. I will be going this late September. Can anyone suggest any good breaks? I am not a pro, but I can hand myself and know my limits. Thank you for your suggestions.

Thanks for the welcome! Behave? For sure, but remember, I give respect and expect to get respect back. Thanks again!

OK, here's the secret to dealing with locals who hassle you. Run like the wind!!
When some local comes up to you and says "You like beef?" (meaning fight) you answer, " No brah, I like pork chop."
If this doesn't work, then take my first advice.

Hahahahahah! Nice! I am not worried about stuff like that. I am not going for that just trying to have fun with the family. Plus I aint no punk, so running is not an option. So there goes your first advice. But I am really just trying to get some suggestions about where to bodyboard during that time. Any breaks for bodyboarding let me know, thanks!

Sandys (Sandy Beach) and Makapuu for shore break. If you're staying in Waikiki, check out Walls by the zoo.
