Puena Point is right next to Haleiwa. If you pass Haleiwa beach park going east the next break will be Puena Point. Usually you have the place all to yourself. The inside is a left and a right but if you go right be careful of the big coral head sticking out of the water. When It gets big enough the outside starts breaking. Be careful when yoou go on the outside theres a mean rip that will take you out to the outside reefs in the blink of an eye.

buy a soft top and learn its the only way. and some people might laugh at you but all surfers had to start some where it helps if u start when ur a kid because everyone cuts u some slack when u hit 15 16 and u dont have it together than of course evryones going to call u a kook. But just blow it off because when ur popping those 180 snaps and then popping ur fins free those old guys who used to look down on u now want to be friends, after that its all up to u with what u want to do. Dont learn in main waikiki though its way to hard try going to paradise or rockpiles.

The vibe I'm getting is don't go to Hawaii if you're new to surfing. I might be going to Hawaii this summer or fall, and I was hoping I'd have the opportunity to learn, although it sounds like I'll be dealing with a lot of attitude. I've been snowboarding for 8 years, and before that I skiied since I was 6. I've never been a big pionneer in either sport, but I have fun and I can hold my own. I grew up sliding down hills, like a lot of you grew up in the water. Surfing appeals to me cuz it seems like snowboarding in the sense that it's about finding your groove and pushing your limits, and macho assholes and idiot beginners alike get in the way. If I do end up in Hawaii is there a good place I could learn and find cool people who might be willing to help/teach?

So Spencer, where does a beginner go on the Hilo side, and who does he hire for a lesson?

That Brazilian god surfer doesn't know anything. You left out Makaha hawaiians started surfing it and hawaiians still own it.

Waaaaa, you want some cheese with that wine half1. Get over out, honestly who ever is out there when it's triple over head Lani's has my respect born here or not. No offence Tom but, I'm a quarter Hawaiian and I'm not complaining. However I do agree that we were born here and we surf here all year day in and day out and when a few haoles paddle out thinking I bought a plane ticket to get here so I have a right to this spot as much as anyone else, bugs me alot. This past week has been hecktik, me and my friends got into a few fights over at Lani's(verbal and physical). Show sum respect please when you come here.

I will be moving to hawaii in a few months to go to school for awhile at the university (University of Hawaii at Manoa). I have been surfing at a few spots on the east coast (Florida, NC, Virginia) and I am really looking forward to surfing out in hawaii. I realize I am still a beginner and just learning but was looking for any suggestions about surfing in hawaii and some good spots that would be close to the university. Thanks for the help
