In Kalaeloa near the Campbell industrial park, Barbers Point sees lengthy lefts on headhigh S swells or broken up peaks on wrapping 3-5ft (1-1.5m) N-NW and W swells. Kauai blocks a bit of the NW, but there is usually some action here where the trades are offshore for the lefts further west or N winds are good around the lighthouse. The coral reef is strewn with rocky outcrops and entry and exit can be fraught depending on where along the curving coast the waves are best.

Crowds and attitude are minimal while numbers of sharks spotted from the flights into the Kalaeloa airport are maximal!
