Kauai, the Garden Island, home to surfing gems such as Hanalei Bay, has its share of lesser-known breaks that are equally fun. We're not talking "secret spots" here. We're talking about those breaks that are clearly marked on all the tourist road maps. The problem is not WHERE to go, but knowing WHEN to go. And that's something you'll have to learn for yourself. It's well worth the exploration, so go and score!
