HUI O HEE NALU
The Hui O He'e Nalu, which literally means "Club of Wave Riders", was officially established in 1975 by a core group of North Shore waveriders to protect the rights of hawaiians and local surfers. Over the years, the club's atmosphere has become more family (or "Ohana") oriented with positive community related goals. Generally known as DA HUI (Da is Pidgin English for "the", and Hui in this instance meaning "club" or "clan"), the present members, who value Da Hui's traditions, are also great ocean sportsmen & women who demand respect for the protection of the island's environment (focused on the land and the ocean) and for the Hawaiian culture and its traditions.
The Hui O He'e Nalu has several community events during the year such as: Da Hui Backdoor Shootout in Memory of Duke Kahanamoku, Da Hui Pipeline Warriors, Da Hui Easter Egg Hunt, Hui O He'e Nalu 4th of July Independence Day Paddleboard Race, Da Hui Bash and Da Hui North Shore Beach Clean Up.
At this time the Hui O He'e Nalu is based on about 400 active members all living in Hawaii, Tahiti, or other Pacific Islands. Presently, Hui O He'e Nalu membership is closed, and club meetings take place on the North Shore every second Saturday of each month.
