In this video by DOSE, Kelia Moniz and Monyca Byrne-Wikey, Roxy surfer girls, tell us their favorite places to surf. Kelia and Monyca both started surfing as kids and the time they were 14 they were kicking ass in professional competitions! Needless to say, they know the water! So what’s on their list of Top 5 Surf Spots? Let’s take a look.
1.) First up is Waikiki. Waikiki was Kelia’s first wave. Beginner surfers can paddle out to a fun, easy break called Canoes. Intermediate surfers can try Queens. More experienced wave rides would have the best time at Populars.
2.) Next up is Hamoa Beach on Maui. Monyca grew up surfing Hamoa’s barrels as a young surfer girl. While Hamoa is a sick break, it’s also mighty powerful and exposed to rips so it’s best for experienced surfers only!
3.) Kelia and Monyca both love Cold Springs in the Mentawais Islands of Indonesia. Cold Springs (also called Roxies) is total warm-water paradise! You have to take a boat to get out there, but it’s worth it!
4.) Lower Trestles, fourth on Kelia and Monyca’s list, is a great spot! You can go there to surf, barbecue, hang, surf again, and leave. There are always a lot of people in the water at Trestles, but there are also plenty of waves to go around. So don’t sweat the crowds!
5.) Last on their list is La Bamba, in Salina Cruz, Mexico. La Bamba is a nice, easy break with rides that seem to last forever. The beach is surrounded by craggy peaks and green carpeted mountains. Long rides with epic visuals? Sold!
This globe is littered with tons of incredible surf spots. But, from the girls who know, these breaks you don’t want to miss!
