It's hollow, shallow, and super fun. Lots of fish and REALLY clear. A really fun wave, especially when nothing else is breaking.
Don't drop in on anybody. ALso, if you wipe out on the take off, immediatly paddle to the channel. I learned the hard way and got finned in the calf.
Really fun. Nice little pits. Watch out for the rock on last part of the left.

save banyans - Save Banyans! Developers are looking to put a breakwall in the bay and build a 6 story condo development that would: 1) ruin public access and 2) ruin this beautiful wave. Stop development on the kona coast. Stop destroying beautiful places with developments. Do your part, save banyans.

banyans at 5ft+ - surfed last 2 days visiting. nice overhead bombs. at the point line-up they suck out over the rocks so you have to know what you're doing. inside and middle break are easier and still get nice lefts. watch the rocks at low tide. definitely best at mid to high tide. falling tide kills it.
