Located on the Big Island of Hawaii, Pacific Ocean, Honoli’i is a quality reef break that lies at a river mouth, offering up great performance-oriented walls that go both left and right. The waves here can be a little challenging and break for up to 100 meters over a coral reef. Gets hollower as the tide gets lower.

The surf here is pretty consistent (6/10) and will get very crowded at times (8/10). The best winds are from the West. The best swells are from the North, Northeast, and Northwest.
