The different beaches and shorelines of the north short were magnificent. The huge waves were like nothing we had ever seen. Be sure to make the day trip to the north shore and take it all in. Worth it.

Summer tends to have smaller waves on the North Shore. You still do have to deal with a pretty good rip-tide so beware. Winter is when the waves are the best for the North Shore.
