Edit Spot

Fun spot with mellow crowd. A big weekend crowd is maybe 15 people. Have surfed it many times by myself or with one or two other people out on a weekday evening.

The crowd is mellow, but like most breaks in Hawaii, show respect and you will get waves. Way too many SUP's

Additional Info:
Paddle out from the beach in front of the condos. Be aware once you hit the impact zone, it gets shallow real quick. Spot gets its name from the mushroom shaped reef. You can go left but the ride is short. One section too many and you will break a fin on the reef, or worse if it's big. Watch out for the SUP's though, starting to see way too many of these things north of Lahaina.


Drive along the lower road in Kahana and park at Pohaku Beach park or at one of the condo complexes. The break is located in front of the first condo complex directly north of Pohaku BP.
