Wai Kai is destined to become an active year-round paradise where residents and visitors connect to the water, land and Hawaii culture by experiencing first-of-its-kind attractions, signature events and the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean. The development by Wai Kai Commercial Development, LLC, is located in West Oahu at Ewa Beach, about 18 miles from Honolulu. Wai Kai will offer unique, interactive and engaging experiences with nearby historic and scenic trails, signature dining, events, music and festivals. The LineUp at Wai Kai will be an exciting social and recreational hub headlined by the Wai Kai Wave, the world’s largest stationary deep-water, big-turn surf wave powered by citywave® along with water-based recreational activities at the adjacent 52-acre Wai Kai Lagoon plus dining and entertainment at The LookOut bar and restaurant, and Foam Coffee & Bar and shopping at Sessions Lifestyle & Apparel.
Sessions Lifestyle & Apparel shop emulates the modern Hawaii waterman lifestyle with a curated collection of brands for women and men that represent a soulful and sustainable connection to the ocean lifestyle our community deeply cherishes. Sessions will also offer all the items you'll need for a day of activities at Wai Kai as well as a cool collection of The LineUp custom merchandise.
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.
When will The LineUp at Wai Kai Open?
We are currently planning for opening in 2022.
How does The Wai Kai Wave compare to other locations? What makes it different?
This is the largest deep-water standing surf wave at 100-feet wide, and is 45 feet wider than any current citywave® surf parks. It is not a novelty or amusement product like those that use shallow-water sheet-wave technology at water parks and on cruise ships. The Wai Kai Wave is truly a facility for sport and recreation. We can create perfect endless and adjustable waves from 2-feet to head high, and adjustments for creating breaking sections for attacking the lip or launching airs.
How do I apply for a job at The LineUp?
We will be adding an employment section to this website closer to the opening date. Sign-up for our newsletter to stay connected on future job fairs and open positions.
