North Shore, Hawaii Surfing
Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach, and Banzai Pipeline are the most important beaches here, every winter they conduct prestigious competitions here, like the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. But before you get all hyped up and prepare to glaze through the waters, we must warn you that the water here during this time is pretty dangerous, it’s more suitable for the Pros. On the brighter side summers might be a more approachable season for beginners as the water is much calmer, hence making it one of the important beaches for Hawaii surfing.
Another famous surfing beach in Hawaii is Peahi, it is located in the Maui region and is easily accessible from the Oahu region. The beach is often called Jaws (There are no sharks! Chill!!) as the waves are pretty wild here. Peahi is then again a surfing spot for Pros, but south and west Maui lies Kihei Beach which is ideal for beginners and makes the surfing experience quite enjoyable.
Waikiki Beach, Hawaii Surfing
During the late 20th century Duke Kahanamoku turned this beach into the heart of Oahu, by teaching visitors how to surf. Since then this beach has been a prominent one and never fails to lives up to its reputation, this beach is considered to be ideal for beginner surfers as they can try their hand at the sport of Hawaii surfing without risking their lives. And after learning the sport you can cherish the experience by posing with a statue of Kahanamoku himself!
