Surfing in Hawaii :: Titus Still Reigns

October 2, 2007 at 10:15 AM | by | ()

Titus Kinimaka, one of the last remaining professional big wave riders of pure Hawaiian decent, is a cult figure in the world of surfing. Rather than sitting high above mortal surfers on his throne of awards, watching newbies topple over the smallest of waves, he shares his wisdom. Now in his 50s, when not competing against punks half his age, Titus and his disciples pass down their skills through Titus Kinimaka's Hawaiian School of Surfing in Hanalei, Kauai.

Ninety-minute beginner classes start at $65 and go up to $250 for veteran surfers who want a little extra help mastering big wave riding. Because the winter waves in Hawaii are different than the summer waves, the surf school has two locations. Right now, the winter spot is the place to be: You'll find your instructors at Pine Trees Beach.
