Our Winter Surfing Lessons Location on the North Shore is Down a Road Named Kahalewai Place

By |November 1st, 2012|Surf Happenings|0 Comments

During the Winter months on the North Shore of Oahu the North Shore Surf Girls teach surf lessons in a protected cove named Puaena Point.  To get there you must turn off of Kamehameha Hwy., onto an unmarked road named Kahalewai.  Part of the North Shore Surf Girls Surf School’s mission in teaching people about the Hawaiian sport of surfing is to share with our students some of the cultural aspects of the area.  A good place to start is with place names.  Puaena Point translates into “hot flower”.  Pua = flower and ena = hot.  Kahalewai translates in to “the house that holds the water”.  Ka = the, hale = house and wai = water.  We find that by learning the Hawaiian names  and meanings of places helps our surf students gain a deeper appreciation for the sport of surfing and we hope a love of the beautiful Hawaiian culture that has given it to us.
