WORDS & PHOTO Zach McCaffree
As the birth place of surfing, home of some of the biggest waves in the world, the proving grounds for almost every competitive surfer, and the highlight of the surfing World Tour, Hawaii is surfing. Outside the skaters realm, it is likely that skateboarding in Hawaii will always take a back seat to surfing. That said, skateboarding is huge here on Oahu. With 80 degree temperatures year round, the only weather that will keep you off your board are strong trade winds and rain, which usually only last a couple hours and things will dry off much faster. Most young surfers skate and not all skaters surf. With eight skateparks scattered around the island, miles of old drainage ditches, and plenty of run-down industrial properties, there is no shortage of concrete and metal. Occasionally you’ll hear whispers of an abandoned home with an empty pool there, or a new indoor ramp here, but that local knowledge is guarded tightly.

Surf shops are plentiful and most sell skate/longboards and other skate gear. There is no trouble getting a setup. The shop to go to, that is the skaters skate shop, is APB. Located in Chinatown, in downtown Honolulu, APB is a stone throw away from A’ala Skatepark, and is a second home or an employer to some the best riders on the island. APB is as much of a part of the local skate scene as the skateparks themselves - helping put on skate jams, contests, organizing movie premiers, etc.. Skaters on Oahu are a tight knit community and yet are extremely welcom-
ing at the same time. There is the same mutual respect among skateboarders here that you’ll find most anywhere else and even more so. As it is well known with surfing, skating anywhere on the islands with a bad attitude and poor manners is in no way welcomed and will not be tolerated. Hawaiians and Hawaii people always manage to have more fun at everything they do, be it in the water on a surfboard, or at the skatepark with friends. If you are looking to visit, bring your board, show up to the park smiling politely, and introduce yourself. Have fun, show some Aloha attitude, and you will fit right in.
