Let's Talk story Category: Events
In the world of competitive open-ocean swimming, you’d be hard pressed to find a better venue than Oahu’s North Shore in the summer. Come June to September of every year, the lively surf that’s given rise to the North Shore’s lore takes a breather and lake-like conditions can be found among our famous reefs. Out of these tranquil waters, the North Shore Swim Series—a five-part open-ocean swimming competition—was born.
This Aloha Friday, April 22, you can share the aloha with the land and ocean.
In celebration of Earth Day we will be hosting a hike, clean-up and lunch with our friends at North Shore Community Land Trust and The Surfrider Foundation. Then in the evening, we have special guest Ocean Ramsey talking story about her mission to save sharks and the ocean.
Here’s all the Earth Day festivities we have in store for you at Turtle Bay Resort. We hope you can join us!

As the winter surf season comes to a conclusion and we bid our adieus to what was truly one of the greatest stretches of surf in history, we wanted to take a moment and highlight three of our favorite moments from the 2015-16 El Nino-fueled North Shore winter.
The Eddie Goes
For one day, the eyes of the world were cast on Waimea Bay as The Eddie ran under historic conditions. At the end of the day, the North Shore’s favorite son, John John Florence, would find himself on the podium and into the annals of surf lore. It was truly a day of days.
Perfection at Pipe
When the conditions weren’t maxed out and straining the buoys this winter, the North Shore bore witness to some decidedly perfect but less than lethal conditions for the Volcom Pipe Pro, all of which suited 11-time world champ Kelly Slater who came away with yet another event win.
