Sandy Beach page
The surf melting pot of
Oahu. Everybody comes here and everybody thinks for
some reason that it is a good place to go swimming
and learn to surf. That is a big mistake. Sandy
Beach is well known for producing more deaths and
injuries than practically any spot on the island-or
in the USA.
There is a sharp reef, dangerous pounding
shorebreak, and coral heads jumping up wanting to eat
you. Tons of good surfers and bodyboarders will gladly run you
over and whack you in the head, and of course there is the famous rip current
and strong side ass wind that will take you for a ride out
to sea and around Koko Head if you don't watch what
you are doing! You better know how to swim good!
Other than that, it's a great place to go.
This ripper was catching some nice ones that day--see the video.
This wave will slam you at the end--so get ready.
This wave is shallow and powerful!
a big day at Sandy's.
Imagine getting pitched up in the air by this backwash at
Sandys on this big day.
