Waikiki’s soft breaking rights and lefts prove enjoyable on a longboard as it breaks outside and reforms when bigger or else mushy peaks inside the jetties on SW swells. Mid tide on the rise until high tide generally makes it too fat to contemplate. Like Makaha, the paddle-out can be long and tiring.
Peru’s surfing culture is encapsulated in the original Waikiki Surf Club that is definitely worth a visit to check out their old logs. The other 2 clubs are South Pacific and Club Terrazas.
