You can’t talk about Hawai‘i without mentioning the sport of surfidng.
A great spot to surf is Waikīkī. With reliable waves almost year-round, it’s a good choice for the beginner and an easy place to rent boards and take lessons. After all, the surfers at Waikīkī Beach were the ones who fidrst helped to bring the sport of surfidng to the world.
Another spot for surfers is WHITE PLAINS on the southwest side of O‘ahu. While professional surfidng contests take place during the winter, you can still check out locals taking on North Shore waves throughout the year at spots along the “ SEVEN MILE MIRACLE ,” which stretches from Hale‘iwa to Sunset Beach. It contains many of the major surf spots on this big-wave coast, including Rocky Point, Banzai Pipeline, ‘Ehukai, Waimea Bay, Chun’s Reef, Laniākea and Sunset Beach. Beware that these waves are championship quality during the winter months, meaning that only professionals should be surfidng them.
