DT Flemming

Edit Spot

Most of the year, this break is crap. But during the winter season it can be totally badass. Last nice day I saw here was in October 2007. On Halloween day it was a solid 8-12 foot face. The break on the far left is a Sandys style heavy shorebreak. Another break way out to the left point is a big, crazy left break.
The most popular break when its big is the right point. Its a very nice , fast , smooth right. Very nice barrels, and a insanely long ride sometimes all the way to the middle of the beach. Rarely breaks, but when a strong swell hits, its totally epic.


Drive from Lahaina up on honoapiilani highway North past Napili and just after Kapalua on the left is a sign for JT Flemming beach, drive down to the parking lot and pavilions. Beach is right there. There are lifeguards and picnic areas for the family too. Tons of tourists though.
