Winter 08/09 surfing: Volcum House – north shore Oahu

Volcum House Show

For those who enjoy surfing I’m embedding a couple enjoyable clips from the Volcum House Show on O’ahu, Hawaii. The first clip has some great surfing footage and tour of a three story home overlooking the big winter waves to the west of Hale’iwa (Sunset Beach & Waimia Bay) and to the east of Kaena Point — western most tip of O’ahu’s famous north shore. (Kaena  Point is the un-verified location of the biggest faced waves … 60-80 feet!).

The second clip is an interview on Volcom‘s StoneYourTV with long time surfer local ‘fuggly dude’ Dave Wassel (watch the latest show with him hunting wild pig) and it offers a glimpse of the surfing life … as well as someone who lives and works in O’ahu as a lifeguard and home caretaker.

    Surfing is one of my favorite sports even though i got a bad accident last year because of very high surfs.

  • Rebecca Murphy

    Surfing is really the best sport out there, i love the adrenaline rush when surfing on big waves.

  • i broke my arm on a freak surfing accident but hey, surfing is a nice sport

  • I too love surfing. I found out about it when I moved to Hawaii a while back. It’s not something you can just give up. After the first time you actually get up on your board and ride a wave, you’ll always be searching for that exact feeling and you’ll never give up.
