Surfing and Ohana (family) are both highly important when it comes to the Hawaiian culture. For a limited time you can experience an intimate exhibit that highlights the stories of Hawaiian surf families. The display titled:Great Hawaiian Surf Families is curated by the California Surf Museum. It is a celebration of Ohana and what it means to the Hawaiian culture.
“Ohana is a primary idea in Hawaiian culture” says Jim Kempton, the President of the California Surf Museum, and curator of the exhibit. “The families presented in this exhibit have passed the traditions of their culture down to the descendants – and their surfing prowess as well. They are perhaps the greatest collection of multi-generational surf families in the history of the sport.”
You’re in paradise and you’re probably thinking, Beach please! Of course, there are 5 miles of beaches for you to soak in the Hawaiian sun at Turtle Bay. However, we recommend you adventure out to some of our favorite North Shore swimming spots not located on property. That’s because North Shore beaches are among the best on Oahu thanks to their white sand, vivid sea life and crisp, clear waters. Even better, they are located only a short drive from your room at Turtle Bay Resort.
