There is surf nearly everyday that time of year on the south shore, and since you asked the question I know it is just the type of surf that you are looking for.

I'm the scab you keep picking off and is there again the next day.

Well if your not a charger it will suit you . I know I had fun there last july at queens on an 11 foot tanker I hired for the week, if your going away somewhere you should do your homework and asking question on a forum like this is a hard one cause alot of people are talking out of there ass or just shit stirring there are some genuine people on here that know what there talking about but there is also genuine people that have no idea what there talking about how can you tell what they know if you've never met them, for example go to wannasurf , then go to the break that you surf most and i bet it is inaccuate and then read all the dribble in the comment about the said break, take all with a grain of salt larry just like you have everything I have just written

I'm the scab you keep picking off and is there again the next day.

larry you've got a tough audience tonight !!!

Im no expert but there were head high waves around the north shore when I was there a few years ago at that time of year. Heard plenty of stories about how the locals can get a bit protective of their waves but didnt get hassled (or threatened) at all. That said, they werent exactly the friendliest bunch in the lineups. conversely had a few big nights out in waikiki...

where's the aloha spirit? over here respect is more about common decency than paying tribute to some silly pecking order. anyway...Larry, Queen's can be a mellow yet fun spot for tankers on the south shore of Oahu during the summer months. expect long paddles and long rides. no rocks, all sand. plenty flat days, but plenty fun days too. can get crazy crowded in the daytime though. i used to prefer to paddle out just before sunset and surf into the night, sometimes to 10 or 11 pm. sometimes a handful of people doing the same. the hotels have a few lights pointed out into the water which helps, but full moon is best. riding a wave with the moon rising over Diamond Head Crater right in front of you...classic!
