Tandem Surfing - Waikiki Beach

We were sitting out on the lanai when Darlene pointed towards the ocean and said, "Oh look! Tandem surfing!" Then I asked, "What's tandem surfing?" She explained to me that its a couple on one surfboard that lifts their partner overhead while surfing the wave." So I grabbed my camcorder and recorded four tandem surf teams going out for practice at Waikiki Beach. Watch the above video.

I found this web site called ITSA (International Tandem Surfing Association) that gives the history of when it all began. Interesting to know, it all started here at Waikiki. Click on the following link to read the article by ITSA:
