China Walls is infamous in Hawaii for its breathtaking beauty and treacherous waters. Due to the numerous fatalities that have taken place over the years, China Walls surf break has gained the reputation of being unpredictable and deadly. It is considered by some, to be a “rite of passage” to leap off the cliffs of Portlock into the rolling surf below.

The bottom is a jagged reef, but equally as dangerous are the jutting cliffs.

It has also been the finishing point of 3 Molokai Channel swimmers: Stephen Redmond, Michael Ventre and Kim Chambers.
