Every time we come to Hawaii, I always try to get out to the North Shore.  It's partly the fact that it's a very cool place, with some of the best and biggest surf in the world, plus, it's just a naturally beautiful sight to see.  I can sit and watch big waves crash all day.  There is a very big part of me that wants to be out there surfing, but that would surely be a trip-ender at this point.  I don't claim surfing skillz, at that level anyway.

You're totally right to be cautious and respectful of the big waves, brah. When I stayed on the north shore for a week a few years ago I borrowed a surf board and paddled out at Sunset Beach to see if I could catch anything. Within half an hour I'd broken the board and the leash and experienced the washing machine that leaves you floating somewhere down there, underwater, wondering which way is up.
