Rice Bowl, Tonggs, & Graveyards
Typically this left and right breaking wave performs best at low tide and wont even break with less than 5' faces. Head high + swell makes for some perfect peeling barrels.
Tonggs is a great surf break for everyone. It contains a fast right that closes out, a slower left that dumps you in a deep channel, and even some good beginner inside waves that roll all the way into shore. You'll also find a few kayakers that sit way outside and catch the occasional big crumbling left.
The wave tends to double up a lot which can make it tricky to manage...but all in all it's great for shortboarders, longboarders, and kayakers of all skill levels.
Sound sketchy? It is. Graveyards is located just east of Tonggs and breaks fast left over shallow reef creating a high performance wave worth a couple of turns.
You can access these breaks from a very small beach access point located in-between two houses at the end of Kapiolani Park. Your best off parking at the meters in the park and walking into the neighborhood.
