Planning on a Hawaii vacation and 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 week days if you can to avoid locals week end activities.  Third take surfing lesson on the North Shore of Oahu.  The North Shore is the birth place of competitive surfing and features the best surf schools on the island.
