Hawaii Surf Lessons
Learning to surf in Hawaii is a wonderful way to fall in love with the ocean. Hawaii surf lessons will introduce you to the sport of surfing in it’s birthplace. Yes, that’s right surfing was invented in Hawaii thousands of years ago. Just imagine long before hotels were built on the Hawaiian island native Hawaiians froliked in the surf, catching waves for days as they say. In 1866, Mark Twain visited Hawaii, and wrote, “In one place we came upon a large company of naked natives, of both sexes and all ages, amusing themselves with the national pastime of surf-bathing. Then in came the missionaries who somehow banned the sport and it almost died out. However, since surfing is so fun and amazing it was not completely eradicated and eventually spread around the world. Today surfing is practiced in organized competition in over 40 countries around the world. Surfing is even going to be in the 2020 Olympics In Japan.

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 Paige’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 more significant 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 preference, except for 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
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. How is this allowed to happen? Some call the North Shore the Bible Belt of the island? a nod to 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 ’80s 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 sun’s harmful rays while teaching surfing lessons.
The North Shore is the Best Place for Beginner Surf Lessons on Oahu because we have uncrowded beaches and excellent surf instructors. The reason our beginner surf spots are uncrowded is that the locals all want to surf bigger, steeper waves. It’s kind of a win/win. It should also be noted all of the surf schools on the North Shore leave a particular, and not to be named beach exclusively for the children in our community. It’s a beautiful example of how our community self regulates. The North Shore also has some of the best water women in the world, which with North Shore Surf Girls training, translates into some of the world’s best surf instructors.
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 be 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.
