One thing you can do in Hawaii – if you find the right spots for this sport – is skateboarding. Come and enjoy!
An other, not so common way to scout the islands, is to use a longboard.
Here a great tropical pintail longboard you can use to do that.
These boards are available at several places, sometimes you have to look a bit as this is not California.
You can bring your own, and even rent at some spots.
It gives you an activate expedition over the islands and you get in close contact with everybody you encounter and engaging will be so easy.
- start earlier in the morning – avoid the noon heat.
- wear a helmet and protective gear
- take water
- plan your trip not to far (you also have to get back)
- take a couple of lessons and practice a bit before you start this
- try out a shorter trip – so you know what you are in for
- HAVE FUN….
and enjoy the beautiful landscape.
1 ) Oahu – Lanikai Kayaking To The Twin Islands
Paddling to offshore islands is popular on Oahu. The most well known of these destinations are the pyramid-shaped Mokulua islets off Lanikai Beach. The twin islets have small beaches on the leeward shores—a white sand beach on the larger island and a pebble beach on the smaller one. The setting is one of the most beautiful in all Hawaii.
2 ) Kauai – Na Pali Coast Kayaking
Kauai is also notable for its ocean kayaking, especially the tours along the spectacular Na Pali Coast. These trips are usually reserved for the summertime, when the northern ocean swells and surf have subsided.
3 ) Big Island – Kayaking Kealakekua Bay
Kealakekua Bay on the Big island’s Kona side is a favorite kayaking spot. Paddle about a mile straight across the bay to the Captain Cook monument. Dolphins are often seen in the bay.
4 ) Maui – Honolua Bay Kayak & Snorkeling
Explore the waters off Kapalua and make a stop at Honolua Bay’s marine preserve for some snorkeling. Best time to go is during the summer when the waves are not as big. With recent reef clean-up efforts by Surfrider and Trilogy Excursions, this area is pristine.
Tip: If you choose to ocean kayak in Hawaii, be aware of current ocean conditions & forecasts. Guided kayak tours are always recommended.
