North Shore

Overview

O'ahu's world-renowned North Shore, home to 18,000 residents, attracts more than two million people each year from all across the globe. Located along a strip of rural coastline, it was originally a remote and unknown royal playground. Even with Benjamin Dillingham's opulent Haleiwa Hotel opening in August of 1899, and the construction of Kamehameha Highway making the area accessible to the sugar industry in the 1920s, it remained a sleepy, sparsely populated rural outpost.

Overview

O'ahu's world-renowned North Shore, home to 18,000 residents, attracts more than two million people each year from all across the globe. Located along a strip of rural coastline, it was originally a remote and unknown royal playground. Even with Benjamin Dillingham's opulent Haleiwa Hotel opening in August of 1899, and the construction of Kamehameha Highway making the area accessible to the sugar industry in the 1920s, it remained a sleepy, sparsely populated rural outpost.

Then came the discovery-California surfers finding Waimea's big waves, the Beach Boys'"Surfing USA," the documentary Endless Summer and Hollywood's growing interest from the little screen to the big screen.

Today, the North Shore is a surfing mecca, whose huge waves attract the world's best athletes. Even with the inflow of people and competition between types of surfers, the area is still rural, the beaches gorgeous, and the waves big.

All the charm, beauty, and rustic feel of this Hawai'i playground are captured through the lens of North Shore resident and photographer Adam A. Palmer who grew up along its shore and among its many unique residents and visitors.
