Hi guys. I’m Mike and this is my first post on Exploration: Hawaii. To be perfectly honest, I prefer to do crazy, fun, and adventurous stuff instead of sit in front of a computer and type stuff up. So I’ll keep my posts short. Sound good?
There’s one place on Oahu that tourist flock to just to get a glimpse of Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles in their natural habitat. That place is Laniakea Beach on the North Shore of Oahu. Since 1999, honu (Hawaiian word for Hawaii green sea turtle) have been regular visitors to Laniakea Beach.
While Marvin spent the first day of 2012 just a few clouds away from Heaven, I decided to spend it at arguably the most famous surfing beach in the world, Waimea Bay. Located in Haleiwa on the North Shore of Oahu, Waimea Bay is known as a world class surfing spot and the backdrop for the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau, or, as it is affectionately know, The Eddie. The Eddie is currently being held this year, waves cooperating, until February 29, 2011 (the event started on December 1, 2011).
