Surfing Hawaii

Hawaii is one of the most famous surf destinations in the world, and also where it all began. Hawaii is a perfect place for surfers of all levels. From the small waves of Waikiki to the powerfull waves of North Shore, there is something for everyone.

If there is such a thing as a perfect wave, you’ll likely find it on Oahu’s North Shore. The big winter waves attract the best surfers in the world, while summer waves are far smaller, which makes the North Shore the perfect surf spot for beginners to.

The sandy beaches of the North Shore is more than 7 miles long and host the world’s biggest surfing competitions during the winter months, including the Vans Triple Crown  (November – December).

The months between November and February is the best time to go for big wave surfing .The powerfull waves can sometimes swell up to thirty feet!! So this is ONLY for experienced surfers . From May to September, the waves subside, creating smaller and more glassy waves for beginners and intermediate surfers.

Accommodation:

Hawaii have hotels and resorts for everyone’s taste. You can choose between affordable aloha hotels located in the different islands of Hawaii or live in luxury by lodging in at 5 stars hotels in Waikiki. The key to really enjoying your stay here is to find the right vacation package suited for your travel. A one hour drive from Waikiki, the North Shore is also home to various accomondations. I also recommend renting a car for your stay, specially if you want to explore the different surfspot around the island.

Transportation:

All of the major airlines have daily departures to Oahu. From there it is not far to the nearest surfspots.

The airlines that I checked, charge around 100 bucks for special luggage one way.
