Backdoor is real easy to find: On Kam Highway, near Sunset Beach. It is right opposite Sunset Elementary School, in front of Ehukai Beach Park. If its working, just look for the perfect peak, the surfers crowding the shoulder and the photographers and wannabies lined up on the beach.

This is one of the best right wave in the world. Is the right of pipeline, but is a little bit slower, less powerful and a little bit less dangerous(cause there is more water from the wave to the coral reef).
It works from three reef: from the first reef, it's not so dangerous, and is possible to be surfed by surfers with some experienced, from the second reef, you need lot of experience to surf it, and from the third reef it's so big and powerful that is only for pros or kamikaze!
The atmosphere is the same of pipeline, there can be some locals, but if you respect them, usually you'll don't have problems.
I think that this is the second best right wave in the world(the first is Jeffrey's Bay, cause it's a longer wave).
Is absolutly my favourite spot. I hope one day I'll surf it!

hawaii is good for you - me and my buddy have been in hawaii for two weeks, surfing, enjoying the sights, mostly surfing. We wanted to comment on all the #### talking going on about hawaiians. The surf has been Amazing..the people were great and welcoming, the energy in the water was great. about the bad guys that everyone is talking about, they are everywhere. You find them in any beach in the world. Just be still....
you chose where to surf. there are an insane amount of breaks here. hawaii is the bomb..

Finally a frank look at reality - The guy (or gal) below is right: the bad boy local thing, especially in Hawaii, reveals only the immaturity and lack of class expressed by all-too-many stupid asses. Per the Pipline Posse gang, people tend to pack together to ward off insecurity and to become stronger. In other words, its just another conglomerate of insecure humans. Face it, take away surfing and these guys could barley function in the world of men (and women - who would date a bonehead except for a slut).

go to school - locals should go to school and learn how to read,write and talk. Yourbringing down the culture of your people when you speak the way you do and think that since your part (less than 10% real Hawaiian) that your a local...most likely a mix of who knows what. Stop the heavy local vibe, the crowd is there and always will be. Time to get educated and get some money not just fight and act like kooks.
