This is what you have come for; this is what has brought you to the North Shore of Oahu. Not the cute girls in bikinis, and definitely not the shaved ice from Matsumoto. You want to experience the North Shore at its finest, but you are a bit intimidated by the stories you have heard about surfers on the North Shore.

This is where the Vans Triple Crown takes place. Local surf enforcers are no joke. Just ask the kids staying at the Van or Volcom surf houses. When the surf is good, there is no way the local boys will let you drop in. This is where Turtle Bay Resort comes in.

If you have the spare change and then a few hundred on top of that to stay at Turtle Bay Resort, do it. This resort has tapped into the local surfing life of the island. Surfer Magazine set up a bar in the resort lobby called, what else, Surfer [The Bar]. Oakley has a shop here and champion surfer Hans Hedeman has a surf school right at the resort.
The beaches on the Turtle Bay property are perfect for beginners and even intermediates. Since the resort came under new management the gates have been brought down and locals are encouraged to surf the waves around Turtle Bay. You will see plenty of surfers of all skill levels in the water just to the left of the resort, outside of the cottages, surfing before and after work. The surfers around Turtle Bay are a bit less aggressive and more willing to let the newbies drop in for a wave. I saw more than one massive wipe out during my stay at the resort to check out the new renovations they had just unveiled in the fall of It was entertaining to watch, but man did some of those wipeouts look like they hurt.
Maybe this is why I am not a surfer. Then again, I did see a champion paddle boarder taking on some waves at the resort and I got seasick when I went SUPing during my visit. Maybe I need to rethink this whole board sport thing, or at least stick to the lakes. Tropical Waters.
