I was in Waimea Bay last year (just looking, not surfing). Beautiful little beach. Was taking the bus to Haleiwa from our hotel and along the way there were loads of local kids getting on and off with their gear moving between beaches. Going back to Hawaii in a couple of weeks, but I don't think the island we're on this time is known for surfing.
Second series of the Garrett McNamara/Nazare series over here in the U.S. Made during COVID, so they had to go wherever the beaches were open this time. Watched an episode last night with amazing footage shot from the tip of Justine Dupont's board riding a barrel at Jaws.
