East Side jump
Sadly, this telephone pole was removed in 2011. This area is to the right of Makapuu lighthouse-near Sandy Beach. It was the place to go to show how brave you were as a kid- to walk out on that slippery pole that was way high over some sharp boulders below. This area will some day be a state park with tour buses, parking lots, bathrooms, and all the rest. Takes a little effort to hike there, but the water is still awesome--but no telephone pole. the last time I was there someone rigged up a narrow 4" x 4" wood beam but it is even scarier to walk on now.This area was not developed because it is in a tsunami inudation zone.

If you are real good, you can hover for a few seconds
before crashing into the water.
