Surfing in Hillo Breakwall, Hilo, Hawaii USA

Skill level:
Advanced
Wave quality:
World Class
Hillo's Brakewall is located in Hilo, Hawaii, which is the most populated city of the island. Hilo is an old fashioned bay front town, with tropical rain forest climate all year long and home of the Tsunami Museum, dedicated to the understanding of the 1946 Pacific Tsunami.

Hilo hosts its own international airport right outside the city, about 10 minutes away by car, with unfortunately no public transportation available from the airport. Along the seaside, there are many shops to buy or rent surfing gear as well as surf schools to take lessons, although the power of the waves makes the spot suitable for professionals only.

Hillo’s Breakwall is visible from Bayfront beach, but in order to get there you need to take a boat from Hilo Harbour. It is easy to find, with a world class powerful wave quality, taking both right and left directions.

The spot offers a good wind direction and swell size that starts at over 3.5 m/12 ft and holds up to 5 m/16 ft and over, while the bottom of the sea is rocky. Due to its level of difficulty, the break-wall spot is not crowded at all during weekends. Surfers should be careful of rip currents, rocks, boats and sharks.
