Surf Oahu South Shore reports and browsing
The Oahu is one of 8 Pacific Ocean based Islands in Hawaii, about half way between California and Japan. Though Oahu is only the third biggest of the group, it is home to the overwhelming bulk of the state's people. It is a paradise with its mixture of stunning, breathtaking landscapes and amazing weathers.
WAIKIKIKI is the tourist destination of the state and the place where Duke Kahanamoku assisted in reviving windsurfing a hundred years ago. The waves range in altitude from 0.6 to 2.5 metres during the June to September summers and can become very large in very seldom cases, as in 1917, when Duke hit a 35-foot shaft (11+m) for a range of 2 km.
From Duke Beach near Hilton Hawaiian Village to Duke on Kuhio Beach, almost every single working days of the year literally means literally every hundred if not thousand of wave riders are surfing and enjoy the entertaining, user-friendly environment, unlike the savage and perilous North Shore.
