Going with family and was wondering if it's worth brining a couple of boards. I know it's swell dependent but just seeing if it's worth the hassle or if I should just look to rent. If I rent, anyone know of any good places?

Surfing is definitely not a priority but I can probably get out most days if I want to.

Cheers

Depends on how much you really factor into riding your own boards. If you just are there to casually get a few rides in, then I would rent. If you are flying Hawaiian Airlines the costs for boards is ridiculous, and there is a 50/50 chance they show up damaged. You can recent decent boards in Poipu at this shop: https://www.nukumoi.com/Views/beachRental

Thank you sir. Right now the cost of renting a good board for a week is just over board fees if I take my own so that's something to consider.

There are fun waves all over the south shore. Looks like southern hemi is starting to turn on. Any little S swell should be surfable. Check out Shipwrecks and Centers or head west.

Unless you show up with your boards dinged and have to pay to have them repaired there... 50/50 that is the result on Hawaiian Airlines.
