Olowalu Mile Marker 14

Black Rock, Kahekili-Airport Beach
  • Winds have backed down a bit however, If you see better conditions closer to where you are staying I would go to those locations. I would only attempt this spot today if your heading south or north anyway. If you see white caps on the water don’t go out. Stay close to shore if you do as the wind can come in strong at anytime.
  • Don’t get your car stuck in the sand and be sure to park completely off the highway!
  • Surf 1-3ft.
  • Turtles! They are protected so give them space but enjoy.
  • ENE wind around 19 kt. Partly sunny. . Waves 1 ft or less.
