This post here on the Last Minute Hawaii blog will be about surfing and everything it has to do with the recreational sport. I personally have never really gotten into the sport itself as far as going surfing, but I love to watch it and see it on TV. Being from the east coast it is not as prevalent here because the waves just aren’t big enough to draw a huge crowd for. Sometimes, when I was growing up and we would go to Daytona beach on the Atlantic ocean down in Florida, the waves would be large enough to body board and do some surfing. I always wanted to learn how, but we just weren’t around it enough to get good at it. I have attempted it a few times but busted my butt and face after standing up!
On our rare trips to Hawaii is where you would see the huge swells for the surfers to jump on and do some big time surfing! It always amazes me to see those guys jump on ten to twenty foot waves and ride them into shore or close to it like my friend over at movers Roswell. Again, we never experienced anything like that in the Florida area, the most it would ever be is three or four foot waves and a storm had to be on the way for that to transpire! I am pretty athletic and flexible so I can stand up on the board but usually just stuck Continue reading “Surf’s Up Bro”
Alright, so we have explored the fun times associated with anticipation that builds up to going to Hawaii. Now it is time to go over the exhausting feeling of having to pack and come back home. During the stay, you get to explore the island, go scuba diving, and see sights that you have never seen before, which is gratifying. I can’t think of a better place to visit than Hawaii. The blue water, large waves, being from the East coast, we don’t see waves even remotely close to the size of the ones in Hawaii! I know a guy at roof repair roswell that learned to surf at 40 years old! Now he is almost a seasoned pro, (he would say anyway).
So, you start to look around at the mess you have created in your hotel room, condo, or whatever. And begin the task of Continue reading “The lonely road back”
Welcome to our first blog post about the ever so exciting preparation of heading to the Aloha state of Hawaii. We try not to burst at the seams too early once we have booked our trip because life still goes on, right? So we pretend that we aren’t thinking about our upcoming journey and continue to make life happen in our hometown of Atlanta, GA. So, with that said, some things have to be considered before last minute though I am sure you understand. Typically we start the research online for what island we want to visit and then plan our days accordingly.
One of my friends over at movers Towson Md always finds extra things to buy before we leave for Hawaii. I mean, just finds things that really no one even needs, but since we are headed to Hawaii, might as well buy it! Extra scuba gear, masks, goggles, etc. Continue reading “Preparing for a Hawaii haitus”
