Yoga Your stay with us will be enhanced with a yoga lesson to keep you loose and relaxed. Because surfing engages many distinct muscle families and joints, yoga is a perfect complement to surfing. It will improve your balance, breath control, and take you into a deeper state of relaxation and concentration. Our instructors are surfers who understand the unique demands of the sport and tailor their classes to meet your individual needs.
We'll treat you to two late morning meals to fully satisfy you after a morning of surfing. Our in-house chef devises a menu based on your dietary needs that maximizes use of local and hearty foods to provide you with energy. As surfers, we can appreciate the appetite that a good session creates, and we are happy to accommodate any requests made in advance.
In addition to breakfast, one night we'll have a bbq. We'll provide everything you need for a great sunset meal and prepare grilled meats, fish and veggies.
In addition to surfing and yoga, we offer a guided hike to the top of Diamond Head Crater to provide you with an opportunity to get a workout while exploring one of Hawaii's most famous landmarks. The entire hike is 1.75 miles in length and climbs to an elevation of 762 feet. Upon reaching the top, you will be afforded a great view overlooking all of Honolulu and Waikiki Bay. This is one of the most popular attractions in Honolulu, and it is a definite must-do while you are visiting.
Diamond Head Crater is a tuff cone, created when magma, the sea, and gases from a volcano combine to emit ash. The collection of ash hardens into tuff, which creates the conical shape. It is thought to be approximately 200,000 years old and to have gone extinct 150,000 years ago. The crater has a diameter of 3,520 feet and is fairly symmetrical, leading scientists to believe that the eruption causing the formation of Diamond Head was brief but explosive.
Diamond Head was originally named "Le'ahi" by the Hawaiians, which translated means "the brow of the tuna." Looking at Diamond Head from Waikiki, the profile of the crater strongly resembles the profile of a tuna (ahi) and its dorsal fin. The current name of Diamond Head came from British sailors visiting the islands in the 1800's, who climbed into the crater and found calcite deposits in the soil. Believing that the crystals were diamonds, the crater received its new name. Diamond Head crater was at one time the site for grazing livestock, but in the late 1800's the United States military began utilizing Diamond Head for its strategic advantage and built Fort Ruger within the crater's interior, the first American military installation in Hawaii. A large tunnel was dug through the crater wall to provide access to the fort, which contained a battery of cannons, a command post, and observation deck. While the fort is no longer actively used, portions of Diamond Head are still held by the military and used for training purposes.
