Sunset Beach



Sunset is one of Oahu's finest and most famous surf breaks. This shifty peak provides different waves in different conditions, but it's almost always good and rideable. Conditions can range from ultra small hair barrels on the inside to massive triple overhead freight trains on the outside. What makes Sunset point so unique and challenging is the shifty peak. One set will break on the north point, but if you get luered too far over there the next set will clean you out. There's no right or wrong place to be, just keep your eye on the horizon and be ready to dodge the cleanup sets if you're hanging out deep.

On bigger days most surfers bring their gun-style boards. This gives you enough length to get up on the wave before it dumps over the shallow reef.
