JUST LOOK AT THE PHOTOS!! LOOK AT THEM!!!! We're, like, TOTALLY surfing dude. And at Waikiki Beach too. Our cool factor which was not much to speak of, has trebled at least. At Per's very first try, he caught the wave, stood up on the board and rode it all the way to the beach, staying upright for at 50 seconds or something. My tight Achilles made me the bane of my teacher's life - a fact he didn't try to hide - but as the photos prove, I managed to stand a few times and once caught a wave right into the beach, staying upright for 20 seconds or so. Woop, woop!!

With its highrises and cheap bars, Waikiki is pretty tacky, especially compared with Kauai but for a couple of nights its so much fun. We also met Per's friend and her partner for dinner at the beachside Hula Grill. (We also met up with them in Japan and they now think we're stalking them...) So despite, or indeed because of, the tack-factor, we like Waikiki. And for us, it'll always be the place we learned to surf... Get in!!!

SO COOL! I think it was that magic Billabong top that did it.
