Castles in Oahu is an exposed beach and reef break. Summer offers the optimum conditions for surfing. Works best in offshore winds from the north northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the south southeast. A reef breaks left. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of rocks,etc.
