winter in hawaii

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?



RE: winter in hawaii

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.
