The waves are about is good as it gets for longboarding. Long rides, consistent lefts and rights, and well spread out. The reef is nice and deep which makes it the perfect spot to learn. Heavy beginner crowds can also make it a dangerous place for those not looking out for surfboards heading straight for them.
Canoes gets its name from the big 6 person canoes that are always out giving tourists a ride. This is where Duke Kahanamoku made surfing a well known sport by giving surfing exhibitions for the tourists.
The best spot to park is in the zoo public lot. Canoes is about a 10 minute walk from here.
