Sunset surfers ride the eternal wave machine right off Kuhio Beach Park in the hubbub of Waikiki. Then many store their boards like so many locked-up bicycles at the Waikiki Beach Center and ride a bus home. It's not unusual to see a sandy-footed wave rider striding up Kalakaua Avenue (WKK's main drag) with board in hand, weaving through a throng of duded-up tourists past designer shops and restaurant bars aglow from freshly lit tiki torches.
For sure, Waikiki is a high-rise tourist amusement park, but Old Hawaii manages to surface through the pavement.
