Just before Christmas we were fortunate enough to be able to take a trip to Hawaii for a bit of well deserved r’n’r after a busy year. Staying on the infamous north shore of Oahu, THE surfing mecca, we had inside connections through local legend, proprietor of Cafe Haleiwa and good friend Duncan Campbell. I have a long-held acquaintance with his brother Malcolm in California and as the “Campbell Bros.” they are the co-creators of the iconic, design-influencing Bonzer surfboard. We had a great time and got to experience some wonderful moments: shark diving, snorkelling with turtles, flying to the Big Island (Hawaii) and driving the volcano crater trail and more. However, as you’ll see, it was the surfing that took centre stage. With the Vans Triple Crown/ Billabong Pipemasters running it was a dream scenario. Thanks to Duncan we got a small taste of what the scene is really all about, met some amazing people and witnessed some incredible surfing.
