A quiver of new surfboards stands at the ready at a North Shore, Oahu surf shop at Shark’s Cove. Also called a ‘stick,’ surfboards come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, allowing surfers to head out on just the right board for the conditions, size, and ability.
It is hard not to feel a sense of adventure, fun, and freshness just looking at this picture.
The world-capital of surfing, Hawaii’s North Shore receives thousands of visitors each years who come to ply their abilities on some of the largest, most consistent waves around. For many, surfing this area of Oahu is a dream-come-true, as they spend time on the same breaks as those they’ve watched on television and read in magazines frequent.
