Surf at Ala Moana Bowls

Hawaii Ala Moana Bowls

Added by Erik Holmes

This wave is the perfect little left bowl set up with great rights and lefts. Remember to always be aware of and respect the locals.

To get there, go to Ala Moana Harbor/Boat parking lot near Hilton Hawaiian Village. Walk along the rock jetty that parallels the boat harbor on the right. Jump off rocks and paddle right towards the deep water boat channel, there's a huge buoy out there. If it is on, you will see a thick sucky left barrel coming through. Have fun, get barreled and be safe.

How to Get There

3 days ago

All around fun

Ala Moana is such a fun, rippable peak right on the north end of town. Bring some sunblock, some water for afterwards, and just have a blast. Under 5ft. and you'll be stoked...over that and watch out for the locals, they'll be dominating. Remember to smile and give the aloha spirit.
