Bodysurfing a point break is a real change of pace from getting pounded at Sandy's or Pounders. This a really fun spot if you've got your fins with you. Just an FYI, the parking lot doesn't look the safest, so don't leave valuables in the car.

Super fun bodysurfing wave. The easiest way in/out is to use the set of stairs near the harbor channel. Take your time though, the bottom ones are pretty slick.

Cliff Jump at China Walls

Hawaii / China Walls (Oahu)

I was told about this spot by a friend who lived there for a little, and it turned out to be amazing. The waves break and crash right against the wall where you can catch a wave or just jump right in.

Relax at Kauai's Secret Beach

Hawaii / Kilauea Point Parking

Is a so-called ‘secret beach’ that sits on Secret Beach Road considered secret anymore? Perhaps not, but don’t let that deter you from exploring the depths of Kauai’s renown Kauapea Beach, more widel.
