Welcome to the North Shore: Where to Stay and Where to Surf

FROM THEINERTIA.COM | BLOG WRITTEN BY ALEXANDER HARO | Oahu’s North Shore is something of a legend. It’s the Proving Grounds. The Seven-Mile Miracle. Whatever you call it, if you surf, you’ve either been there, dreamed of being there, or are planning a trip there. It’s paradise, through and through. Hawaii in general is what you see on postcards: swaying palms, perfect sand, perfect weather, and perfect waves. Although Honolulu – and this is especially true of the Waikiki area – is inundated nearly all year around by tourists, the North Shore stays a little quieter. Keep the country country, as they say. Apart from the media frenzy that descends on Haleiwa every December, the North Shore moves slowly. Roosters complain loudly to each other in the undergrowth just off the bike path, scratching in dirt that, for some reason, is obviously Hawaiian. The Islands may be the only place on earth where, once you’re gone, a person misses the the dirt.

JGeeks Jam at Turtle Bay

We are still singing about that one time we stole money from our dad, what it’s like to be a Maori boy  and ummm sausages? That’s how comically random the JGeeks are and they had hundreds of fans singing, dancing and laughing July 5th.

Here’s a video of some memorable moments from the epic show. We bet you’ll also find some great videos and photos from the concert on Instagram with the tag #JGeeks

Nalu (Wave) Therapy

Turtle Bay’s Nalu Kinetic is one of three spas in the nation to have the amazing treatment.

The WaveMotion Table is making waves at Turtle Bay Resort’s Nalu Kinetic Spa.

We have bragging rights. We are the ONLY spa in Hawaii with the amazing technology AND one of three in the whole nation. The Nalu (Wave)Therapy treatment is one-of-a-kind and great for athletes in need of a tune up or just about anyone with tight muscles that could use an extra deep stretch. Think mommies who constantly have a tot on their hips, athletes, runners – anyone!

It makes sense to offer such an extensive treatment at Turtle Bay Resort. We’re located on the North Shore AKA The surf capitol of the world. Pro Surfers call Turtle Bay home during the winter months and they can benefit from the intense treatment.

Bidding Aloha to Pulu The Surfer Dog 1999-2013

Guest Blogger: Rocky Canon (Pro Surfer, Turtle Bay Surf Instructor, Pulu’s Best Friend)

Pulu (born in December 1999) was a Pit-Lab  mix who loved his master and loved the ocean.  As a pup, he would follow me out surfing to the breaking waves!  Crazy loyal.  I would have to paddle back to the beach and tie him to a rock or a tree.

He had an older brother, Opio(born in Oct. 1997), an Aussie cattle dog, Border Collie mix that would stay by my towel and did not need a leash to do so.  Pulu couldn’t help himself, so for the first several months he had to be tied up next to Opio.
