Turtle Bay in Oahu is an exposed beach and reef break that has consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the south southeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. The beach break favours right handers. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for rocks.
