The wave breaks long left and short right with the left ending in a nice deep channel that is the boat harbor. Here you can expect to find a crowd of groms (young but good surfers) mixed in with a few locals who enjoy a nice fast wave in town. On big summer days with 4-6 foot swells this surf break makes for good tube rides.
Keep in mind that Kewalo Basin means "Shark's Hole"...so if you go out there, make sure you dont look too tasty (or just less tasty than the surfers next to you).
