Pohoiki in Big Island is an exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the east. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Beware of urchins, rocks, locals and sharks.
