SURFS UP! It started Vans triple crown of surfing! http://www.vanstriplecrownofsurfing.com
North Shore Hawaii is surfing capital in the world. Every winter, all professional surfers are coming for a surf contest. Such as HIC pro (Ezekiel Lau win), Hawaiian Pro (Filipe Toledo win) and it was day two of Vans world cup of surfing today (photo) and Billabong Pipe master is coming on December 8 2017.
If the perfect wave exists, you’ll find it on Oahu’s North Shore. The towering, glassy winter waves of this legendary surf mecca draw the best surfers in the world.
Watching North Shore surfers are one of the highlights of your tour while you are in North Shore in winter. Also, you can stop by historic Haleiwa town, it was small surf town before. Few restaurants, lunch wagons, garlic shrimp, shave ice, acai bowl and you can stop by surf shops and beach store.
The back side of Haleiwa town, there is a beach where sometimes the sea turtles rest on the beach. (Please give them space, do not bother or too close to them! DO NOT TOUCH!! It is prohibited by Hawaiian state law.)
End of Haleiwa town, there is a local macadamia nut farm. This farm had 100% local (Farm at Waialua) grew mac nut. They also honey, coffee, 100% noni juice. Few fruits trees on the property too such as mac nut tree, noni, papaya etc. It is nice to see the fruit on the tree that you have never seen.
Waialua, still there is old sugar cane mill, it is now Waialua soap factory. It you are looking for something made in North Shore Hawaii you should stop by. Also, there is a coffee farm.
Haleiwa to North Shore beaches. You’ll find the most concentrated and celebrated stretch of world-class surf breaks on the planet. The region is home to the famous Seven Mile Miracle. Puena, chuns, Laniakea, Leftover, Waimea bay, Log cabin, Pile line, Pupukea, sunset, Velzy land, there is surf break on 7 miles long. You will want to stop, world-famous Waimea bay, Pipe line and sunset beach but please be aware of the wave and listen to the lifeguard. Do not put your belonging on wet sand. Wet sand means the wave came to that line. Do not attempt to swim or play in the water or near the water, keep eyes on your kids. I am not joking. The wave in North Shore Oahu is stronger than you think, the water pressure you cannot imagine until you are beaten by the wave. A lot of people rescue by lifegurde or local people EVERDAY. Please be extra careful.
