When you watch the (local) body boarders that call this beach home it is very easy to become excited and anxious to jump in to the fun. WARNING: This beach usually has a very nasty shore break, which means the waves come fast, scoop you up in no time and then dump your body on to the sand. Statistically, Sandy's is #2 for broken necks, broken backs and head injuries. The #1 location is further around Kalanianaole Hwy at Makap'u'u beach. If you have any question about surf conditions- ask the lifeguards. Remember, "if in doubt, don't go out".
