Surfing on Kauai
Rule Number One: Wave action is seasonal. From November through March, the big action is on the North Shore. Hit the south shore for winter surfing – Po`ipu Beach, Kealia Beach and Kalapaki Bay, for example, have consistently favorable surf conditions. In the summer, however, the North Shore’s waters are much calmer.
Stand up paddling is a hot new water sport that can be pursued whether or not the surf’s up. This is a wave craft that’s not particularly complicated. The paddler stands on a large longboard and uses a canoe paddle to propel through the water. With lightweight paddles, extra wide, aero-dynamic surfboards, and good balance, boarders can cruise around looking for reefs and fish, ride the waves or cruise down a river.
