HIGH SURF

HIGH SURF SIGN

HIGH SURF LINK PICTURE

Large powerful waves are generated by winds and storms at sea sometimes thousands of miles from the Hawaiian Islands. Seasonal high surf occurs on all shores of Oahu. Typically, shorelines facing North, East and West receive high surf during winter months. Shores facing Southeast and Southwest receive high surf during summer months. If you are uncertain about your abilities don't go into the ocean during high surf; heed all posted high surf warnings! Your life could depend on it!
