North Shore Surf Lessons Haleiwa HI
While Waikiki is most often promoted as the best place to learn to surf on the island of Oahu, a well kept secret is that North Shore surf lessons Haleiwa Hi is way better.  Most of the Waikiki visitor industry wants to keep people in Waikiki to spend more money so they tell potential surf students that learning to surf on the North Shore is way to dangerous, because of our big waves.  The truth is that in the summer months North Shore Surf lessons are held in small safe waves in super clear water at a beach called Chun’s Reef.  In the winter months when the surf on the North Shore is bigger the North Shore Surf Girls teach our lessons at a beach called Puaena Point, a protected cove just on the edge of Haleiwa town on the island of Oahu.

How to save yourself and the World At the Same Time So that You Can Surf More

How to save yourself and the World At the Same Time So that you can Surf More
I sometimes lay awake at night worrying that I’m personally not doing my part to save the world from the effects of human made pollution.  I know that plastics are killing the oceans and dangerous chemicals of all types have made their way into our food chain.  For example glyphosate, the active ingredient in the world’s number one herbicide Roundup has been found in mother’s milk.  Going 100% organic seems to be the answer.  Also, nothing packaged, nothing processed, no sugar, no meat and no dairy.  I’ve been eating like this since October 2017.  For the record I cheat sometimes but 90% of my diet is as such.  The results are that I feel really good, my skin is much better, my food cost are only $12.00 a day and I’ve reduced my household trash by 75%.  The hardest part is changing my relationship with food and resetting my pallet.  It takes about a month but once you get there it’s not so hard and in fact I don’t really desire processed food at all.

Paige Alms and Billy Kemper win 2017/2018 Big Wave Surfing Tours

By |June 9th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Paige Alms and Billy Kemper win 2017/2018 Big Wave Surfing Tours!  This blog is likely the only place on the internet where you will read this statement with Paig’s name coming first.  Why is this?  Is it because the men’s tour had more events?    Is it because the men’s tour had bigger prize money?  Is it because the men’s tour had more money?  Or is it because there is a strong male bias in surfing almost to the commercial detriment of the sport?  To be fair most sports have a male bias, with the exception of Olympic Sports, even surfing which is included in the 2020 Games to be held in Japan will feature 20 female and 20 male surfers.  Taking away the

The World’s Coral Reefs are Dissolving

By |February 27th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Is it too late to stop the world’s coral reefs from dissolving?
About a year ago, a friend of mine shared with me that her marine biologist boyfriend had discovered that it appeared that reefs near Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu were crumbling and he didn’t know why.  I remember at the time thinking “this can’t be good”.  Fast forward to 5 days ago Scientific America reports on a new study that increasing acidification is causing  the world’s coral reefs to really dissolve.  Reefs in some sites with the highest rates of acidification are dissolving faster then they can be built up.  The prediction is that by the end of century most coral reefs will be dissolving away.  What this means for surfing is one thing, what it means for all of humanity is unnerving!

Healthy coral reefs provides a home to over one million aquatic species and income in the billions and millions of jobs for people around the world. In addition to food for people living near coral reefs especially on small islands.  Coral reefs also provide a natural barrier protecting coastal cities, communities and beaches world wide from high surf and erosion. The potential for treatments […]

The Brazilian Bikini on the North Shore of Oahu

The Brazilian Bikini on the North Shore of Oahu

The North Shore’s surf spots such as Chun’s and Puaena are known to frequently have young ladies in tiny Brazilian Bikinis floating around.  Why is this happening especially when some call the North Shore the Bible Belt of the island?  This is a nod the many Christian based churches based here.  The classic old school local girl used to wear board shorts and a -T-shirt at the beach as a way of being modest.  So what happened?  The answer is that in the 80’s a flock of Brazilian Bodyboarders arrived not only wearing tiny bikinis but selling them to all the local surfer girls.  Some even opened bikini shops, married locals and changed the culture for better or worse.  For the record the policy at North Shore Surf Girls surf school is for all our instructors to wear leggings, not only for modesty but to protect our skin from the suns harmful rays while teaching surfing lessons.

Threats to North Shore of Oahu’s Green Sea Turtle Population

Threats to North Shore of Oahu’s Green Sea Turtle Population

Every year thousands of visitors come to the North Shore to view sea turtles on our beaches.  While sea turtles are very well protected on the North Shore, our sea turtle population is on the decline here and world wide.  This is due to poor fishing practices, marine debris consumption, boat props, destruction of nesting habitat, poaching and fibropapillomas.  It’s scary because green sea turtles have been protected from human hunting since the 1970’s.
