    Volley Ball

    by Onedragon Updated Feb 21, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Volley Ball is a huge love here on the Islands. And especially here also on Oahu!!!!
    The Hawaii { U.H.} Wahines/ women volley ball team has to be one of the best college teams ,not only in the U.S.,but I bet in the world!!!!!!
    But the sport of volley ball doesn't stop there. It is a hot item anywhere you go in Hawaii. Whether it be in a gym or on the sandy beaches here. It is one of the number one sports in Hawaii.

    Equipment: Get a net ,a volley ball and some eager players and you got a game happening !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Aloha Stadium ... where the big games are at!

    by TropicGirl77 Written May 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here is an aerial view of our Aloha Stadium, or U of H stadium. This is where all UH home games are played, along with ProBowl, baseball and then there are concerts! Though there is a lot of parking, it never fails that they have to open overflow parking at many of their games/concerts! On most weekends and Wednesdays, they open the stadium parking lot up for swap meets (flea markets)

    Equipment: Bring parking money and light rain coat for sudden showers.

    It's Aloha Stadium

    TAIKU

    by Onedragon Updated May 7, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THIS IS AN INTERESTING SPORT OF COMBINATION VOLLEY BALL AND SOCCER....
    I SEE THEM PLAYING EVERY WEEKEND IN A PARK THAT I LIVE CLOSE TO.
    WHEN I WAS TAKING PICTURES OF IT I NOTICED AN OLDER MAN THAN ME WATCHING ME TAKE THE PICTURES. SO I ASK HIM IF HE KNEW WHAT THAT^ SPORT WAS CALLED ..AND HE SAID "TAIKU" AND THAT HE THOUGHT IT ORIGINATED IN ASIA..????NEVER KNOW !!! MAYBE....
    WITH FOUR PEOPLE ON A TEAM,IT IS PLAYED LIKE VOLLEY BALL,BUT THE NET IS ONLY A FEW FEET OFF THE GROUND...AND LIKE SOCCER, ONE CAN NOT USE THEIR HANDS TO TOUCH THE BALL...ONE HAS TO KICK IT,OR USE SOME OTHER PART OF THE BODY TO GET IT OVER THE LOWERED NET...!!!

    Equipment: A GOOD WORKOUT OF TWO SPORTS COMBINED !!!!

    Let's Go Surfing Now!

    by Hopkid Updated May 1, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Surfing lessons are fun and aren't as scary as you might think. Taking lessons in Waikiki on Central Beach is just about the most perfect place for the first-timer. The waves are gentle and abundant, the break isn't too far out, and even then it's mostly shallow enough that you can stand on the bottom and not have to worry too much about drowning. Plus they give you a gigantic board that is very stable and helps out quite a bit in allowing the learner to stand relatively quickly.

    We went with the first outfit on the beach as you walk towards Diamond Head down Kalakaua Avenue at the Waikiki Beach Center just past the Moana Surfrider Hotel. Philip was our instructor, an old kane who's obviously been around the block a few times. But he was trim and fit...a testament to his lifelong hobby of surfing. He kept the instruction simple and basic and we were in the water within 10 minutes. His goal was not to get us to be perfect surfers but to get on a wave and stand on our boards. That's the ultimate goal anyway right? And dang if we (me, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew) didn't all stand on the first time out! It was a total blast and I would recommend it to any and all. Only $35 for an hour's lesson and only $10 per hour to just rent a board.

    Best time is early in the morning before it gets to crowded. We went at 7am. Oh, and be forewarned that the worst part of it is the paddling back out to the break. You'll be wishing the hour was over after 30 minutes!

    Equipment: Just bring your swimsuit and a towel. They'll provide the rest.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This club is 25 years old in Sept 2005.
    The program director, Jen Jen, just left in August 2005 after 10 years.The club is now suffering from her lack.

    You can request a 3 day pass to try out the club.
    You will receive a schedule of classes, the use of the showers, lockers, and pool as well as the weight room.

    Be forewarned: Theft occurres here.
    I had my very, very expensive watch stolen on August 11, 2005.
    The police are so overwhelmed, that is it rare to get something prosecuted.

    In addition, the club will do nothing to help you.
    They say they are not responsible, so you must defend yourself.
    Many members left their things in the lockers which were broken into while they were working out.

    CLIMBING DIAMOND HEAD

    by thinking Written Feb 26, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most famous volcanic crater in the world is Diamond Head, located on the South-east Coast of O'ahu at the end of Waikiki overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It was originally named Laeahi by the ancient Hawaiians. The name meant "brow of the tuna" and looking at the silhouette of the crater from Waikiki, you can see the resemblance. The current name came was given to the crater by British sailors in the 1800's. When they first saw the crater at a great distance, the calcite crystals in the lava rock appeared to glimmer in the sunlight. The sailors mistakenly thought there must be diamonds in the soil. Diamond Head is a crater that has been extinct for 150,000 years. The crater is 3,520 feet in diameter with a 760-foot summit. When the United States annexed Hawaii in 1898, harbor defense became a main responsibility. One of the major defense forts, Fort Ruger, occupied the Diamond Head Crater. A battery of canons was located within the crater providing complete concealment and protection from invading enemies. An observation deck was constructed at the summit in 1910 to provide target sighting and a four level underground complex was built within the walls of the crater as a command post. A 580-foot tunnel was dug through the crater wall to provide easier access to the Fort.

    The observation deck and underground complex is now abandoned with the advent of radar but evidence of the command post is still present along Diamond Head Trail. The trail is paved almost the entire way but can be steep in spots.

    There are two sets of stairs, one with 99 steps and the other, 76 steps. There is also a 225-foot unlit tunnel. The hike is classified as easy to moderate in exertion but is certainly worth the breathtaking, unparalleled view of the entire west side of the island, from Waikiki to Koki Head.

    Useful Information:

    Diamond Head Trail is 1 ¾ miles to the rim and takes about 1 ½ hours

    Equipment: There is NO shade schedule an early hike

    Bring water and a flashlight (for the tunnel)

    Bathrooms available at the trailhead

    CLIMBING CHINAMAN'S HAT

    by thinking Written Feb 26, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cone shaped outcropping of lava off Kualoa Point resembles the peasant's chapeau worn by rural Chinese - thus the name: Chinaman's Hat. The reef surrounding the island supports an abundance of marine life and is one of the O'ahu's best offshore islands. You can see Chinaman's Hat from numerous vantage points along the coast but the best view is to actually go out to the island. You can walk there during low tide but the best way to get there is via kayak.

    On the island is a small beach nestled in a secluded cove. There is also a small cave carved out of lava and a steep volcanic cone perfect for exploring. The view of the Koolau Mountains, Mokapun peninsula, Kahaluu, Kaneohe, and Kailua is unmatched.

    Equipment: Directions:

    Off the Kamehameha Highway offshore from the Kualoa Point State Recreation Area, approximately 45 minute drive from Honolulu.

    Useful Information:

    Climbing the volcanic cone takes about 20 minutes, is strenuous, and can be tricky so be careful.
