Waimea Bay Big Wave Surfing

Uploaded on Wednesday 4 May 2011



Big wave surfing at Waimea Bay. Another solid swell hit the islands Sunday night, and the Bay was firing on Monday morning, January 11th.

Lots of wipe outs, a tow-in ride at first light, heavy barrels.

Waimea Bay is located in Haleiwa on the North Shore of O‘ahu in the Hawaiian Islands at the mouth of the Waimea River.

In winter, Waimea and other North Shore locations such as Pipeline and Sunset Beach host a number of surfing contests because of the large waves found here. These waves are created by winter storms in the North Pacific, and their arrival on O‘ahu's North Shore are typically forecast accurately several days in advance. In summer, Waimea typically has clear and calm water.
