Located on the South Shore of Oahu, Waikiki is one of the most famous breaks in the world. It is a fun collection of peaks on a reef that offer up easygoing sections perfect for longboarding or learning to surf as the crowd will attest to. The waves here are easy to surf and break for up to 200 meters over a coral reef. Watch out for the foamies and have fun!
