Hawaii: intermediate surfing in NovemberDear folks,
I am an intermediate surfer, will spend two weeks on Hawaii in November and am looking for the good surfer beaches. Initially I thought the North Shores of the islands was the real deal but from what I read now it sounds like the place had really huge waves and was only cool for pros. In your opinion, is this true for the North Shores of all the islands?
Do you have any recommendations on where to surf at this time of the years and where to stay? I am particularly interested in Maui, but also in Oahu and Kauai.

1The north shore when I was there, is not for the faint of heart, all overheads,,, Also keep in mind the beach culture for surfers in Hawaii can be violent, fights are pretty common when mainlanders show up.
I am also the same level surfer as you, go to Costa Rica all the time to surf, but Hawaii when I was there 3 years ago, both North Shore Oahu and Paia Maui, made me a spectator, the swells face were almost double overheads. Kona I got in some surfing one afternoon, a much better surf scene too, borrowed a board from a local...Honolulu has some easy surfing all day long. I was not looking to surf, but enjoyed watching the surf, and got out once as my wife was at some art fair...
Check out all the surf reports/beaches below. The offshore winds there are wicked...
