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 Brazilian Bikini on the North Shore of Oahu

By |February 24th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

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.

World Surf League is Giving up on Hawaii for 2019-2020 Surf Season

By |February 17th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

World Surf League is Giving up on Hawaii for 2019-2020 Surf Season
The World Surf League claimed/confirmed that it will not be running the Pipe Masters on the North Shore of Oahu in 2019.  This is because the City would not agree to let the World Surf League move the Billabong Pipe Masters from being the last event on the World Championship Surfing Tour to being the first event.  Many believe that as the birthplace of both  surfing and pro surfing that Hawaii should always have the honor of being the last stop on the world tour, the World Surf League believes otherwise.  However it’s been difficult to find out where they want to move the final event too.  It’s hard for me to believe that the World Surf League is giving up on Hawaii.

Below is what is being called a “preliminary” schedule for 20018-2019.  My sources are telling me that it’s far from over with multiple parties filing contested case hearings with the City over the matter.  More as I get it.

Today I get My Surfer’s Eye or a Pterygium Removal

By |February 13th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Today I get My Surfer’s Eye or a Pterygium Removal.  After 3o years of blood shoot eyes from too much sun exposure I ‘m finally getting one of my baby blues fixed.  After all this time the pterygium final started to enter the cornea of my eye and is causing my vision to blur.  I’ve always know I would have to have this procedure done, the idea is to wait as long as possible.  One thing I did start doing years ago was to not surf in the middle of the day. My thinking was I could use sunscreen to protect my skin buy no way could I keep a pair of sunglasses on surfing Pipeline.  While it did not stop the pterygium from growing, hopefully it prevented more dangerous things from developing.  Another benefit of waiting so long is that surgery techniques have improved.  For starters glue is now used instead of stitches.  Also a skin graph is used on the first go around rather then  waiting to see if the pterygium will grow back.  Pre instructions for the surgery include no eating or drinking anything for 12 hours prior and no high heel shoes to be worn to […]

Stand up Paddle Boarding is a Must Do on the North Shore of Oahu

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

Stand up paddle boarding is a must do when you visit the North Shore of Oahu.  A 45 minute paddle  up the Anahulu River will thrill young and old as you paddle past green sea turtles on smooth water.  If you go in the later afternoon you will see the sun setting on the horizon and fall in love with colors too orange to tell.  Stand up paddle boarding is easy but if your a bit unsure get a lesson.

Will the World Surf League really pull out of Hawaii?

By |February 7th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Will the World Surf League, WSL really pull out of Hawaii?  Recent news stories in the Honolulu Advertiser indicate a showdown between the WSL and the City Parks Department.  The fight is over a request by the WSL to change the status of two of its event permit applications.  The City in a letter to the WSL  states that it would be unfair to the rest of the surf contest applicants to do this because all of the allocated time slots are in contention.   Background; the City Parks department rules allow for a limited number of events on the North Shore.  These rules are generally supported by both the North Shore and surfing community because they cap the number of time beaches and surf spots are taken away from free surfers.  With all of that said there is an exception in the rules that allows the Parks Director to do whatever he/she wishes.  For example there is a rule that states that no two surfing events can run in same permit period, however, the Eddie Akau event has an annual holding period that runs through multiple other events.  This works because the Eddie needs 20 ft or large waves to run while […]
