Aloha Friday Photo: Waimea Bay

Mahalo to Mara Barnhart for sharing this nice shot for Aloha Friday Photos. Mara took this shot at Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu back in April 2021. On the April day that this photo was taken, the bay looks very peaceful without strong waves crashing to the shore. This calm scene is in contrast to the winter surf where waves can reach 30 feet or more and when only the most expert surfers and lifeguards should dip their toes in the water. In fact, we just checked the Hawaii Beach Safety ...

A wave of Southern California beach headlines swept in during 2020

Southern California beaches, the hundreds of miles of coastline that are one of the defining characteristics of the Golden State, weren’t just a place in 2020 to take a dip into the cool ocean or lay out a towel and relax on the warm sand. In 2020, the coastline became a reflection of how Southern Californians coped with, and reacted to, the coronavirus pandemic that shifted our culture this year. In some coastal towns, beaches were the line in the sand drawn by those who argued people needed a ...

Adventure High: Schools that are revolutionizing outdoor education

In recent years, the experiential education movement has surged in popularity. We looked to our literal backyards of Charlottesville, Va., and Asheville, N.C., to see how the movement is providing more outdoor opportunities for middle and high schoolers and what that’s doing for the next generation of leaders. Pulling into the Miller School of Albemarle (MSA) campus outside of Charlottesville, Va., I get the distinct sense that I’ve entered the real-life equivalent of Hogwarts, except this is a ...

Surfer Alert: Kauai has a North Shore, too!

The North Shore of Oahu has four world-surfing tour beaches, and is known as the best board-riding coast in the world. But go north from there to the north shore of Kauai, and you'll find the best breaks that nobody knows about. Drive to posh Princeville and, just before the St. Regis Resort, look down from the guardrail to see the uniform rollers coming into Hideaways and Pali Ke Kua. Both spots have viewpoints for spectators. Stand-up padders (called beach boy surfers in Hawaii until...

I’ve avoided surfing in Hawaii most of my life. Here’s why I changed my mind.

I would gladly trade quality for solitude. When it comes to surfing, that means passing up perfect waves with a crowd to surf something empty. I don’t like to hassle for waves, and I certainly don’t like the aggravation that comes from sitting in the lineup for an hour without catching a single wave, all while watching the same guys on every set. For this reason I’ve avoided Hawaii for most of my adult life, choosing instead to venture out into more remote and lesser known coastlines. Until la...
