Two of Hawaii’s Top Young Surfers Add New Ele­ment to Surf­ing at Tur­tle Bay Re­sort

New Zealand Surfing - - Grom Attack - Turtle­bay­surf.com for all the ac­tion from Oahu’s fa­bled North Shore.

HONOLULU’S ZEKE LAU AND KEANU ASING, TWO OF HAWAII’S MOST PROMIS­ING YOUNG PRO­FES­SIONAL SURFERS, RE­CENTLY ADDED A NEW DY­NAMIC TO THE SPORT OF SURF­ING WITH THE GAME OF S.U.R.F.

Held amid the rip­pable peaks of Pool Bars at Tur­tle Bay Re­sort, S.U.R.F. bor­rows its foun­da­tion from bas­ket­ball’s game of H.O.R.S.E. in which each per­son tries to mimic their op­po­nents ma­neu­ver, gain­ing a let­ter for ev­ery missed ef­fort. “It was a lot of fun do­ing the shoot and surf­ing with Zeke. We’ve been best friends for a while so we weren’t tak­ing it too se­ri­ously,” said Asing. “But it was def­i­nitely a lot of fun.” The game, cap­tured and edited into a YouTube video, show­cased that not only could this duo bring to light a new dy­namic to surf­ing, but also show­cased the fun waves that the line­ups near Tur­tle Bay Re­sort re­ceive well into Spring and early Sum­mer. “We wanted to find a fun way to show­case the line­ups near Tur­tle Bay Re­sort and didn’t want to feel like we had an agenda to push,” says Jeff Mull, who helped or­ga­nize the video. “We tapped Zeke and Keanu, who are un­doubt­edly some of the most promis­ing and tal­ented young Hawai­ian surfers to­day, to see if they would be in­ter­ested in play­ing the game and went from there. It was one of the most fun and mel­low shoots I’ve ever been a part of.” Visit
