Going to HI for vacation next month, staying at the Kahala resort, which is a few miles east of Waikiki not far past Diamond Head. I've never been to HI, I'm wondering what my expectations for being able to OWS should be? I found some threads where people were recommending places to go or meeting up with masters teams or whatever, but I'm wondering if I can just hop in the ocean and swim from my resort? Or do some SOS-style jog to the Diamond Head Beach and then swim back along the shore to my resort? (looks like ~3mi back) I don't have a concept for if this is safe from sharks/jellyfish, how bad waves may be, etc.
Ride for show, run for dough.
