So you pulled the trigger and decided to spend some time on the North Shore during the Month of December. What can you expect? If you arrive before the 20th of December you will get to watch the Pipe Masters, which runs from the 8th to the 20th surf permitting. The men’s world champion of surfing will be decided at this event and it’s truly one of the greatest shows on the earth. You can expect the surf to be breaking everyday, with excellent conditions for learning to surf. You can also expect to see pro surfer’s virtually everywhere you go. Right now there are over 200 professional surfers in the world and they are all on the North Shore for the end of the world tour. Pro surfers are super nice to fans, you can take pictures with them at the beach and get autographs signed as well. However, since the North Shore is also the coolest place in the world, being filled with surfers, it’s not cool to approach them in the super market, especially Food Land. Besides, great surfing and pro surfer sitings, one can expect to find it hard to find places to stay on the […]
It’s that time of year on the North Shore of Oahu when the surf is perfect for beginners learning to surf. The North Shore Surf Girls Surf School is lucky because in the summer months Hawaii’s surf mellows out just enough for there to be a little beginner wave at a special beach called Chun’s Reef, located just two miles north east of Haleiwa town. Chun’s Beach also features a rather empty white sand beach, super clear water, green sea turtles swimming all around and a it is also guarded by the City and County of Honolulu Lifeguards from 9:00am to 5:00pm daily.
Spring break starts in a few short week and the North Shore of Oahu is the perfect place to visit. Learning to surf on the North Shore is the perfect bucket list item to check off. Other activities spring breakers can do include, hiking, snorkeling, and even parting with pro surfers at Turtle Bay Resort. However, spring breakers on the North Shore will find it hard to park at Laniakea or Turtle Beach, because officials have closed it off. Apparently accessing the beach safely is not part of our governments mission statement. Below is a cute video that explains the current status:
It’s the beginning of the the 3rd week in November and the surf on North Shore is super glassy and incredibly small. The Van’s Triple Crown of Surfing is on hold, with everyone praying for anything besides dead flat. The surfer boys and girls are all going stir crazy too. New surf contest towers go up and surfing lessons go down, and to top it all off the State of Hawaii is closing off a public park out of spite. Say goodbye to Laniakea, the best North Swell surf spot in Hawaii.
North Shore Surf Insturctor Montgomery "Buttons" Ernest Thomas Kaluhiokalani's Majic Feet and Ready Smile will be missed.
(March 30, 1959 – November 2, 2013)
North Shore Surf Instructor Montgomery “Buttons” Kaluhiokalani’s had magic feet and a ready smile. Buttons a true Hawaiian surfing legend invented a surfing style that influenced generations of surfers sadly left us on November 2, 2013, losing a hard fought battle with cancer. Button’s was a true master on a surfboard, the kind that are born not made. Always wearing a huge smile, most likely permanently planted on his face from the joy of all the insane waves he’s ridden in his life, Button’s loved everyone he knew. Humble too was his way, just smiling even more when someone gave him props for his surfing, which did all the talking anyway. The last years of his life he spent at the beach, mostly Chun’s and Puaena Point teaching tourist and VIP’s to surf. It was fun to work/play with him in the water, his line “You be the boss of the board” always made his students stand up. His volunteering of his expertise teaching special needs children to surf with Mauli Ola Foundation and others will ensure that his love will live on forever. Buttons you will be missed by all us North Shore […]
