Summer time in Hawaii

When is one of the best times to visit Oahu’s North Shore? … When it is Summer time in Hawaii . When the waves are up and breaking big on the South Shore, the North Shore of Oahu during our Summer time in Hawaii months can have some really awesome and enjoyable surfing conditions which are perfect for beginners and advanced surfers alike. Our summer months in Hawaii generally consist of the end of May through the beginning of September. Summer time in Hawaii is generally a season of fun, sun and festive times.

Being that waves are seasonal from coast to coast, our winter North Shore season comes and goes and Oahu’s South Shore wave season finally wakes up in all her beauty. Being that Summer time in Hawaii can conjure up some pretty large surf on the

is no longer just a shade of calm, Pacific blue, but rather, mass amounts of large waves and currenty white water can dominate the southern line ups in the Honolulu/Waikiki areas, making water activities some times a tad bit dangerous. In fact, now that we’re in the month of June, as far as surfing and waves are concerned, the past two weeks in town have kicked off with a bang. With big waves from two large southern swells slamming into our south coast, it has been absolutely ideal

for advanced surfers who pride themselves on rising to the occasion or rather, stepping up to the challenge that wonderful Mother Nature presents to them.

Here are some interesting facts and tips for our mainland visitors, as well as for the visiting tourists from the world abroad. Here’s some cool things that you just might not know about our wonderful and beloved Summer time in Hawaii.

Just as anywhere in the world where you may travel, people live here and are not on vacation. The locals still have to commute to work and still have to go about their daily lives. So be very cautious and respectful of how you drive and where you pull over on our highways. No matter how late you may be for the Hula Show or for the luau, do your best not to speed in community neighborhoods. Drive as if your children lived on these back streets. Traffic can be pretty bad at certain times of the day, so leave plenty early to get to your destination on time. Not to sound like a contradiction, but a great tip to know while driving on our highways and freeways is, what ever speed limit signs you see posted on the side of the road, our police give a certain speed leniency that usually allows for about 5mph to 8mph over that posted signs speed limit, without you getting any kind speeding ticket whatsoever.

Drive safe, drive courteous and throw a Hawaiian Shaka (Hawaiian slang, sign language for thankyou) out of your car window when you are merging on to the road or into a lane of traffic. If you follow these simple tips we’ve laid out for you, your vacation during the Summer time in Hawaii will go a lot more pleasant and smooth.

Temperature & Climate Zones

The islands are an incredible collection of diverse micro-environments, each with its own unique weather, plants and animals. As a result of the shielding effect of volcanic mountains and the differences in weather at various elevations, you can find tropical rainforests, cool alpine regions, arid deserts and sunny beaches—all within the span of just a few miles

Water temperature

The Hawaiian Islands’ near-shore water temperatures remain comfortable throughout the year. The average water temperature is 74° F (23.3° C), with a summer high of 80° F (26.7° C). Wave action varies dramatically between island coasts and seasons

North shore is a great place to learn how to surf all year round if you know where to go or if you sign up with the right and most safe surf school. Even when the North Shore of Oahu has big swells hitting its’ shoreline there are great places to go where the waves are perfect for learning how to surf, but as I have just mentioned, do your research and find one of only a few of the surf schools that exist out there that prides themselves first and foremost on their students safety.

Hawaii really only has two seasons, Winter and Summer. Winter here in Hawaii is better than summers are in most places. Summer is the dry season in Hawaii, and winter is the rainy season. Don’t expect too much to differ in the weather during your trip; there’s a reason they call this place paradise. It’s mostly sunny on the regular, with a chance of a few scattered showers throughout the day.

The temperature is near perfect in summer months, Daytime temperature highs range from mid to upper 80s. In the winter months, daytime highs average in the upper 70s to lower 80s. ( temperatures in Celsius, 78F is about 25.6C and 85F is 29.4C.)
