Crystal Clear Blue Wave

The best surf spots in Hawaii vary from season to season as wind directions change. Oahu's North Shore features a number of beaches with the best Hawaii surfing conditions of all the islands in the winter months. Each winter the rugged coastline serves up massive and imposing ocean surf. The island storms take credit for generating giant swells as they make the long journey from the northern Pacific Ocean to pummel reef breaks on the northern coastline.
