You can surf nice waves during the fall and winter (november to march). The surf point is located 2 min away walking out of Xinalani, on your left hand side, when facing the ocean, beyond that big human profile rock. Wether you’re a beginner or a seasoned surfer, you will enjoy this beautiful sand break producing small to medium sized waves, breaking leftwards. If you're a total beginner, be cautious, and ask the locals for help in case of doubt as there are a few rocks on the right hand side of the spot, when facing the beach from the water. They are not too dangerous because they are not in your way if you follow the wave. If you are a complete beginner, make sure you take a lesson, you'll be better off under the guidance of a pro. If you fall off your board in the rocky bottom area, make sure you do not step on the rocks, but swim back to your board. It may make you feel safer and more comfortable to wear surf booties or water shoes so you avoid any risk of feet cut.

Surf Lessons
Lessons are very personal and detailed experiences. Once on the beach, the instructor will start with a quick stretch targeting the areas of the body you will use during the lesson. After going over ocean conditions for the day, you will get a sand practice of basic paddle and stand-up techniques that will prove useful once in the water to increase your wave catching and cultivate a hunger for surfing. You will also learn valuable tips on how to conserve energy and improve stamina. After the lesson, the instructor will analyze how you did and share with you a few dos and don'ts to help you next time you're out surfing.
