The movie Blue Crush was filmed in Hawaii, on the north shore of the island of Oahu.
Among board riders across the world, female surfers are known as "wahines."
"Surf forecasters" use information from satellites in space to find big waves.
What’s a “grom,” you ask? It’s a young surfer who rocks the beach just like an older kid.
Did you know that surfers have rules for who “owns” a wave? Surfers riding waves have to get out of the way of those paddling out, and everyone has to stay clear of swimmers. A surfer who is standing and riding a wave gets to keep it —no one should “drop in” (try to catch the same wave).
Contrary to what people might think, divers are actually at a lower risk of shark attack than other water sports participants. 54% of shark attacks were on surfers/windsurfers, 38% were on swimmers and only 6% were on divers/snorkelers.
