Oahu, Hawaii is paradise basically all year round. Of course, there are rainier and dryer times, warmer and cooler days, but no matter the season it’s still an unbelievably beautiful destination.
Within the spectacular island of Oahu lies the iconic North Shore. Though all of Oahu is draped in natural beauty, the North Shore is, if possible, even more magnificent. It’s famous for having enormous, perfect waves and miles of unspoiled coastline. Not only is the North Shore rich in aesthetics it’s also a popular destination for super rad events. Head to the North Shore to check out one of the following happenings:
Ever heard of the Banzai Pipeline? It’s a world-famous surf spot on the North Shore, and The 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro is being held there. This event is specially made for Hawaiian competitors and is a truly magnificent sight. Not only is it run at one of their most treasured and treacherous surf spots, but it is also a gateway event for non-World Tour surfers to compete in the prestigious Pipe Masters in December. Oh, and there is a $75,000 prize purse up for grabs.

When you’re not running, you’ll experience the party-vibe at Ragnar Village complete with s’mores, hammocks, lush grass, palm trees and magical views. Camp out with your team, or check into Turtle Bay Resort, which is walking distance to the trails and Ragnar Village.
One of the best aspects of Hawaii is its rich culture. One way to experience a taste of the Polynesian culture is at the exhilarating Polynesian Showcase, happening every Sunday around sunset at Turtle Bay Resort. Grab a seat by the pool, order some fresh fare from The Point menu, and sip on the legendary Turtle Bay Mai Tai. By the time the performers call you up to the stage and teach you how to shake and sway your hips Hawaiian style, you’ll feel invincible!
