The North Shore of Oahu has become world famous for its beautiful beaches, laid-back lifestyle, and most notably, its big wave surfing. All along the shoreline between Kaena Point and Kahuku Point, famous surf spots, including Ehukai Beach (commonly known as Banzai Pipeline), Waimea Bay, and Sunset Beach attract world-class surfers from around the world. During the enormous winter swells, waves can easily reach 20-30 feet in height, and occasionally grow even larger. Because of this, Waimea Bay has become the host location for the memorial Quicksilver Big Wave International that is held in honor of the legendary Eddie Aikau. In addition to the North Shore's magnificent surf, there are many outdoor activities and opportunities available to visitors and residents alike, such as scuba diving, fishing, horseback riding, hang gliding, as well as a slew of different water sports.
