Surfers live for the big waves that come pounding each winter onto Oahu North Shore. Resembling salt-water breathing dragons, the rollers can mount up to 20 to 30 foot walls, and, if that is the case, in a one split second the competing champions will be defeated, the crowds will be drawn to excitement and lifeguards will become real heroes.

Big wave surfing is an awesome and petrifying spectacle, that may easily make your hair stand on end. Just fancy a 30-foot wave crashing onto the shore with a tiny surfer riding its lip, the very ground shakes and a misty salt spray fills the air. You have got to see all this with your own eyes.

But this petrifying show can be dangerous as well. Strong and unpredictable, these swells are also very dangerous for the spectators hanging too close to the water. Never should children be allowed to play at the edge of the water, no matter whether supervised by the adults or not. And when the lifeguard orders to move back, everyone should obey.

Ranked as the top paid visitor attraction in Hawaii, the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu North Shore is definitely the place to be visited. A perennially popular one-of-a-kind theme park, it could be easily called a living museum where hundreds of Polynesian islanders revive their exotic customs, culture and tradition in an environment that invites interaction and is sprinkled with a touch of magic.

The Center will appeal to all ages with a wide array of activities that runs from early afternoon into the evening. The Center's newest attraction is a $2.65-million canoe house featuring a 57-foot double-hulled voyaging canoe, carved and launched in La'ie. The canoe is hand-carved out of dakua wood transported from Fiji. When it is not out on sail, it will be housed in the Halau Wa'a. The canoe house is also being used for interactive activities associated with Polynesian navigational practices.

The 42-acre territory of the Center is populated by seven native villages. Here visitors will be able to participate in the lives and adventures of Hawaiian and other South Pacific cultures. A canoe pageant, an award-winning luau and an extravagant evening show with a cast of 100 native performers are the things not to be missed.
