Surfing Hawaii by Leonard Lueras
Book DescriptionWe now call this most amazing of water sports surfing, but in ancient Hawaii, where this unique form of recreation was born and first refined, it was called he'enalu, a poetic Polynesian word used to describe the wonders of being moved so swiftly and naturally by the sea. Many centuries have passed since Hawaiians first surfed, but those same timeless waves that they rode so regally still rise from deep in the Pacific, striking this island group's pristine reefs and shorelines and generating powerful energy vectors that any surfer will tell you are their sport's ultimate challenge. Join Periplus' team of knowledgeable author-photographer-surfers as they take you on an action-filled tour through the remarkable islands of Hawaii. Surfing Hawaii is the ultimate guidebook to surfing in Hawaii. Drop into stoking wave circumstances, isle-hopping from north to south, through the extraordinary birthplace of surfing. This big, action-packed guide book includes: Full maps Travel advisories Beachside commentaries Up-to-date inside info on surfing sites All the information needed to make any surfer's next visit to Hawaii an endless summer of waves to make any armchair traveler green (or tan) with envy. Drawing on the knowledge of an expert author/surfer and photographer /surfer, Surfing Hawaii covers every island and every great beach in full detail.
