DanielsHawaii offers North Shore Tours!
If you are interested in the BIG WAVES on the North Shore of Oahu – Do not visit Hawaii in the summer. During summer there are almost NO WAVES on the North Shore of Oahu. Therefore there are no Surf Competitions in the summer on the North Shore. It’s still beautiful… just no big waves and no Surf Competitions.
See Turtles, beautiful beaches and Surf Competitions
Our North Shore Tour passes by Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and Laniakea. Just like our Best Spots Oahu Tour we stop at our Turtle Beach, Laniakea. Laniakea is also a good surf spot and one of the few surf spots where the North Shore of Oahu has waves almost all year long.
How do you know if there is a Surf Competition on the North Shore?
Surfing competitions in Hawaii usually have a so-called “holding time” which means whether the competition takes place on this particular day or not. It always depends on the weather conditions. Normally, it will be announced at 7 am in the morning whether the surfing competition will take place this day. To make it easier for you we have a list of the most famous Surf Competitions in Hawaii for you.
