winter in hawaii

« on: August 15 2007 17:08:00 »

Hi I am thinking of going to hawaii in november, was planning on staying for about 3 months and then heading on to australia.
Just looking for some advice. where would be the best island/ town to go to for an intermediate surfer, i have been surfing for about 2 and a half years here in ireland. Love the idea of warm water surf, although I am slightly worried about getting absolutly creamed by gigantic waves, from what i can gather the waves there are a bit heavier than what i am used to at home.
How hard is it to find accomodation and a job (waitressing, bartending) in suggested place?
Thanks
Aoife

The waves are faster and stronger than what  you are used to in Ireland.  You may get creamed, but you will survive.  No problem getting a job, you may be a bit late to the party, most people are already on the North Shore come November, but there is room for you, too.  Get a job in Haleiwa, at Turtle Bay or further into town. (Honolulu)  I had two jobs there, you can get them if you are the least bit presentable and don't look like you are on drugs.  It's not a cheap date, living in the islands, but it is well worth the expense.
Aloha
