Guide to surfing in Kauai and ideal places to do so

While Hawaii has been fairly popular with regards to the tourism sector some places near it are still yet to figure on the radar list. One such quaint location is Kauai and its pristine white beaches seem to be now picking up for surfing and some fun on the sea. If you are also considering the location as your next vacation spot here we guide you where to do surfing in Kauai.

North shore

The north shore of Kauai definitely gets some of the best winds and is ideal for surfing. However, Hanalei located here is a prominent destination for surfers of all sizes. Though most of the north shore remains flat in summers you still manage to get some beautiful waves to ride upon. Apart from that, there is Kahili where the wave is just strikingly awesome. Since winds are pretty steady here you can find both beginners and advanced surfers trying their luck to have some fun at this location.

Eastside

Kealia is one of the most gorgeous beaches on the east side and it is quite popular too. If you stick towards the left side of the beach you can hope to get some rocking waves to enjoy. Usually, the wind duration would be less but if you are smart enough you can find a spot to have a longer experience. When arranging Kauai tours for yourself make sure you include Kalapaki as that is the best choice for any beginner surfer to be at. Waves here are restrained and move only in one direction making it easy for you to move your boat.

South shore

In the south, you get the beach of Poipu. It is usually very crowded with tourists but that is primarily because it has wonderful white beaches and waves which are unbeatable. Also, most of the tourists stay in the shallow waters never bothering to go a little deep inside. Once you manage to cross that hurdle you can hope to get some wonderful and steady waves only for yourself.

Westside

In the west of Kauai, you would first find the beach of Pakala which is again a little overused. However here do not go paddling at the back because that place slightly for the localities and they may not like it. Also, this place is frequented by sharks so you might need to be careful. Kekaha, on the other hand, is the last town towards the west and hence it is fairly unfrequented. However, its shoreline gets some really strong waves and you can really enjoy your surfing session here.

Conclusion

If you are looking to go surfing in Kauai then this guide would surely tell you how to plan it all up. You may be a beginner or experienced and accordingly, you can choose which all destinations must figure on your bucket list. Trust a reputed company to arrange the tour for you as they know which places would get you the best surfing experience. It is always better to plan in advance as Kauai beaches can be really difficult to comprehend later.

The Boise Whitewater Park is an excellent example of the cool things which can be done with repurposed dams. Engineers modified the existing Thurman Mill Diversion Dam to create an adjustable water feature which can accommodate river surfers or kayakers, depending on flow rates. The wave is part of an ongoing initiative to build a world-class whitewater park in the midst of downtown Boise.
