waimea bay cam

In Hawaiian, Waimea means "red water", which is most likely in reference to the red-colored silt that once freely flowed out of the Waimea River mouth. After a large rain, look for murky and red water on the Waimea Bay Cam, when the river mouth breaks through the sand bank and connects with the bay.

The North Shore is the world's premier surfing destination. Every winter, large swells caused by massive storms in the North Pacific slam onto Oahu. Waimea is one of the few breaks that can hold XXL swell when other waves like Pipeline are washed out.

Waimea Bay was the first big wave surf spot and considered one of the most challenging waves to surf from the 1960s through early 1990s when other waves like Teahupo'o and Jaws stole the limelight.
