I don't know about the planes, call the airlines and ask. There are rental shops off the beach, also I heard of a company which will deliver the board to your hotel, Hawaiian Surfboard Rentals, (not an endorsement, I've never used them) you can check them out on the net. the Sheraton Waikiki is pretty much on the main strip, so you will not have a problem getting around. Don't expect any beach in front of that hotel, it's a breakwall. Further down you get beach in front of the Royal Hawaiian and off towards Ft. Derussy way, but nothing in front of the Sheraton Waikiki.

The water is still really dirty around Bowls my friend just got sick. The airlines can accomidate a 9'0" my dad and I took a trip to tahiti last year and brought a 9'3" gun. 5 feet hawaiian is about a 10 foot face. It's going to get that big tomorrow and thursday.

Puna, I hope your friend gets better. Yeah, the water is not as clean as the local gov't wants you to believe, I picked up a little touch of Kamehameha's revenge from the waters, but it's not too bad. I'm just farting more than usual. I try to be discrete but you had better be upwind, brah.

FYI, the local airlines in Hawaii charge $25 for a board each one way trip and Delta charges $100 each way assuming the entire package is under 50 pounds. Looks like it would be better to leave board at home and rent.

Hmmm, I don't know about that. Maybe you should take your board, because I don't know of any surf board rentals in the area that actually rent rideable boards. I surfed threes late this after noon, with the occasional 5 footer, it waspretty good. But my apendix is hurting when I push against it. Doesn't sound very good, I swallowed a little water too.

i'm moving to oahu on the 24th. i am so excited i cant sleep.
i rented a house on the north shore for my wedding and then i'm moving to the south shore, close to work. what will that surfer be like in a few weeks? the house is on the east side of Haleiwa.

Summer looks pretty good for town side, we had a few good swells hit already. North Shore is slowing down a bit but there is still some good surf to be found.

i'm looking to go to surf school during June, and i'm trying to narrow my search down. i could go to costa rica, but it's rainy season. i could go to hawaii, but likely expensive. i could go anywhere really. can you give me some advise?
