The Ho’okipa Hill or ‘Guard Rails’ as the locals often call it (the guard rail behind the life-guard tower) is where everyone likes to hang out before and after sessions. It’s the perfect “peanut gallery”. It’s a beautiful spot to hang out in the evening and watch wave after epic wave. The funny thing about Ho’okipa is that pretty much at any time of the day on any day of the year, there will be some pro windsurfer out there doing something amazing. And on the really good days, there are dozens of them out there and the hill is the perfect amphitheatre to watch it all go down. You can hear cheers from the hill while you are sailing sometimes. It makes it pretty fun and also pretty embarrassing on those days when everything seems to go wrong. Nothing gets missed, good or bad!
