This area is home to some of the best wavesailing in the world, so expect strong cross-shore trade winds on most days after 11am. Hookipa is the centre of kite/windsurfing activity in Hawai'i, but on windless mornings, this clutch of quality reefbreaks is always rammed. Furthest west is Lanes lefts, then there's shallow rights and lefts at the Point, just next to the main peak of Middles. The sailors are usually forced downwind on the rights, leaving plenty of long, roping lefts for packs of surfers to fight over. Hookipa is super-consistent, year-round, evidenced by the constantly jammed car parks of the Hookipa Beach Park off the Hana Hwy.
Rips, rocks and windy-rigs falling from a great height are all part of the deal.
