Hawaii Day 7: Surfs Down

Sunset Beach On A Calm Day

After checking out of our hotel we went to hike to the top of the infamous Diamond Head. It was actually a pretty vigorous hike but with a great view but it was a little too crowded with tourists for my taste.

After having such a blast at the North Shore yesterday we decided to head back. This time I was determined to rent a boogie board and actually surf those monster waves instead of let them toss me around like a rag doll. I rented a boogie board and grabbed a hamburger from Sharks Cove and went to the beach. The waves were gone. It was flat as can be. Glassy. All day I didn’t catch a single wave. I’m sure the guys who rented the boogie board to me were laughing their asses off. I felt like a real tourist. In fact, I was one. Well sunset beach may not be as fun without the waves but it is just as beautiful. And since the waves were gone, we had the entire place to ourselves. It was a great way to finish off our vacation.

On our way to the airport we stopped and met Swede who just moved out there. He took us out (and paid for! Thanks Swede!) our last sushi dinner. Two hours later we were in a plane coming back to the main land.
