Information about the James Kealoha Beach Park Surf forecast

A general guide to surfing at James Kealoha Beach Park can be found by selecting the local surf guide option on the grey menu.

Very soon you may start to choose your surf days based on the wave energy alone combined with our forecast of favourable offshore wind conditions.
