Did you know that surfing - or He'e Nalu - was born as a favourite pastime and a gift to the world from the ancient Hawaiians?
Oahu's own Duke Kahanomoku brought the love of surfing to the world in the early 20th Century and today Oahu is the birthplace of modern surfing. The perfect wave conditions make Waikiki one of the best places to take surf lessons. While, the North Shore is the best place to watch surfers compete on monster waves at the
Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Competition
during the Winter.
