Watching surfing on North Shore

Aloha everyone! Is this your first year being stationed in Hawai’i? Or are you counting down the days to the next duty station? Either way, y’all have to check out the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing happening in the North Shore from November 12th-December 20th!

This is one of the world’s most celebrated surfing trifecta series! The Vans Triple Crown of Surfing has been crowning the greatest competitive surfer of the North Shore’s infamous big wave season for 36 years! Oahu attracts the world’s best surfing athletes to a 7-mile stretch of coastline in Haleiwa to showcase their skills. This time of year waves can reach up to 20+ feet! If you’ve never been to this event I highly recommend it. Nothing like watching these surfers take on some of the most massive waves.

The first event, the Hawaiian Pro, will take place at Haleiwa Ali’i Beach from November 12th-November 24th. The second event, the Vans World Cup of Surfing, will take place at Sunset Beach from November 25th-December 6th. The third event, the Billabong Pipe Masters, will take place at the Pipeline from December 8th-December 20th. For all the detailed information check out

This is my family’s last year on island and we’re looking forward to being spectators again at the event! It’s absolutely mesmerizing watching these awesome athletes take on the thunderous waves!
