Oahu’s North Shore is home to some of the world’s biggest waves, and Laniakea may be the best point break on the coastline. Located about 2 1/2 miles past Haleiwa, Laniakea is the first surf break you see along the Kamehameha highway. Strong currents and the nearly exposed reef bottom at low tide make the spot dicey at times. Laniakea is also renowned for the sea turtles that call it home, and the area draws about as many turtle watchers as surfers. It holds up in everything from waist-high to tripple-overhead conditions. The current can be very strong here so prepare to paddle constantly just to stay in the lineup. (video!)
That turtle's living the dream for sure.
I haven't been back to Oahu since I was three so I definitely didn't do any surfing. Looks like a gorgeous beach!
I've been to this beach to see the sea turtles, but have never surfed it! Maybe next time.
