My husband is a pretty decent surfer and we plan to spend about 10 days on the Big Island in late Nov. We're staying in a private condo on Alii Drive on the Kona Coast across from Lyman's Bay which is purportedly a good winter surf spot. Can anyone tell me a good place to rent a decent longboard for about a week near Kailua-Kona?
Also, any advice on a good, but very reasonable place to purchase prepared ahi tuna poke or any variety of poke (takeout) in the area? I'm used to getting poke from Daiei in Honolulu and Safeway/Star Markets/Foodland on Maui, but not familiar with the markets on the Big Island. I plan to eat as much of this stuff as I can during our vacation but don't want to pay ultra primo prices if I can get a good recommendation from a local!
Also -- another favorite: best Loco Moco recommendation for that area? Mahalo!
