China Walls: come on, restore the safe access

Surfers are still struggling to reach the China Walls, one of the best surfing spots in Oahu, Hawaii.

One year ago, the authorities closed one of the entrances to this wave with a locked gate. Nevertheless, surfers chose to jump the fence, as there is no alternative to reach the peak.

Many people have injured themselves while doing this.

This is a very dangerous way of reaching China Walls, but the local authorities haven't restored a safer pathway to the water.

China Walls is a very popular place for surfers and swimmers, scuba divers, snorkelers, and cliff jumpers.

The locked gate has limited rescue time for everyone having fun out in the water.
