Surfing is uniquely Hawaiian dating back to the late 1700's when native Hawaiians were seen riding a wood plank on the swells of Kealakekua Bay on Hawaii Island. It probably got its start long ago in ancient Polynesia, later thriving in Hawaii. It was once a sport only reserved for Hawaiian royalty, which is why surfing is often called the “sport of kings.” With the end of the Hawaiian taboo system in 1819, commoners were allowed to freely participate in the sport.

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Cross Country Skiing

    Cross country skiing began thousands of years ago as a means of transportation and is still used for that purpose today.
