Surf Culture: The Standing Wave in Hawaii

Although Hawaii is commonly known as the birthplace of surfing ocean waves, there were actually six traditional surfing sports performed by Native Hawaiians going back to antiquity, one of which is river surfing. It was Hawaiians who first elevated surfing on stationary river waves to the level of a national sporting practice.

Learn more about the history of river surfing and of Wai Kai's cultural connections.

The LineUp Launch

The LineUp Launch will be located on both the main level next to Sessions Lifestyle & Apparel with convenient access to the Wai Kai Wave as well as on the lower boardwalk level adjacent to the Nalo Kai Club Lounge. It's the place you go to check-in, get your RFID wristband, book additional services or lockers. Essentially -- it's where you go to "Launch" your day at The LineUp.

We recognize the use of linguistic markings of the (modern) Hawaiian language including the ‘okina [‘] or glottal stop and the kahakō [ō] or macron. We recognize the importance of using these markings to preserve the indigenous language and culture of Hawai'i, but for the functionality of this website, we have opted to omit them.
