There’s a massive wave sculpture at Turtle Bay Resort. The work of art is entitled, "Plastic Free Pipeline" and is made out of recycled materials and trash found on the North Shore of Oahu. The wave is big enough for you to stand in it and get barrelled. It’s part of the plastic free movement and was constructed by artist Ethan Estess.
We talked story with Ethan about his exhibit that is turning heads and inspiring others to limit their plastic footprint.
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.”
