This break is hands down the most epic break on the windward side of Oahu. It faces North, so on low wind days during the winter (especially on days with light southern Kona winds), this break goes off north shore style. On a good day you'll see glassy left and right barrels everywhere like you're in some sort of fantasy surf movie. North beach is made up of 3-6 peaks that break both left and right.
There is a long flat slab of reef that covers most of the entry to the surf, but there are a couple of skinny outlets. The waves break over a mix of sand and reef.
To get to North Beach, have your Military ID ready and go through either the H3 or Mokapu Rd. entrance. Guests just need to show their driver's license. Park along Bancroft Dr. or Pond Rd. and follow the trail down to the surf break. If its going off you wont miss it.
