Planning on a Hawaii vacation and are wondering what you should do.  First, don’t stay in Waikiki, it’s kind of like Las Vegas.  There are lot’s of hotels and cement and little of authentic Hawaii left.  Second, plan your activities on weekdays if you can to avoid locals weekend activities.  Third, take a surfing lesson on the North Shore of Oahu.  The North Shore is the birthplace of competitive surfing and features the best surf schools on the island.
