Right in front of the Duke's statue, in front of
all the tall buildings and concrete is beautiful
Waikiki Beach. This is were surfing has it's ancestral
roots, the Hawaiian Kings used to surf here, and
it's easy to see why: It's a pleasure to surf
here. There are actually several different spots.
Canoes is the wide, rolling peak in front of all
the Beach Boys and girls renting boards and giving
surf lessons. This is one of the best places in
the world to learn to surf because the waves are
so gentle and rolling. It's very easy to push
someone on a longboard into a 1 foot wave, the
perfect beginner's spot.
The beach scene right in front of Canoes, Waikiki
is a nice easy right with a perfect wall, and
a short mushy left.
Waikiki it's also fun just to go out there and
relax, the waves are so easy, and everyone is
surfing. There is a out of control crowd, and
more often than not you while surfing here you
will find a dead scratch beginner kicking his
longboard out perpendicularly to the wave right
in front of you.
It's great fun to watch the outrigger canoes filled
with tourists go straight through the crowd, mowing
down boards and bodies left and right.

of surf schools, the beach boys are expert teachers.
They pride themselves in being able to teach almost
