So maybe it's useless to ask questions here, because it seems as though nothing has been posted in this thread for a while, and every answer I read was dramatic and it just seemed lame. BUT, I am going to Maui in April with my family, and I want to surf. We haven't decided where exactly we're staying yet because we're waiting to find out where would be the most beneficial for what everyone wants to do. I have surfed before, not much, but I certainly had the hang of standing up and everything. I also snowboard often, and I know when I surfed before I felt like my snowboarding background helped me out alot.  So I'm looking for someplace where it's not going to be boring once I get the hang of surfing again, but someplace where it's not foolish for me to try and surf. Any advice?

I'm 47 years old, from Brazil and I have been surfing since I was 7. The last couple of years I only went surfing during the summer vacation and occasionally at selected weekends. Now I'm working hard to get in shape again as I will be visting Hawaii for the first time, Oahu, in February 2014. One aspect I am really concerned is that I use to surf only sand beaches and a few point breaks but never faced coral reefs. I am aware that after finishing (or falling) from a wave I will not be able to stand into the bottom as I generally do as it seems a little danger to do that. Should I wear boots just in case? I am also prone to surf only in begginers and intermediate surf spots,

With respect,
