Very civilized water. Glassy in the morning. Building wind swell in the afternoon. Very little cross chop. 1000 mile fetch from the north brings breaking swells on the reefs on the windiest days. Sweet backside riding, little or no shore break. Lots of open water to ride if you stay upwind of the crowded campground.

A huge beach with lots of options. Some spots are a little small like Kitebeach in Maui but are very safe with safe launching techniques. Huge downwind catch beach, no getting blown out to sea. Sandy beach by the campground and at the southern end, rocks and urchins in between.
