Once a hub of the sugar industry, the Waialua Sugar Mill on O‘ahu’s North Shore is now a sweet spot for makers of everything from surfboards to soap. Here, you can find world-famous surfboard makers like Eric Arakawa and Pyzel Surfboards, whose riders include North-Shore born John John Florence, the youngest-ever Triple Crown of Surfing champion. But surfboards are far from the whole story. You can also find goods from North Shore Soap Factory, jewelry from V Boutique, and items like powdered kava, roasted boar, and shave ice with homemade liliko‘i syrup at Island X Hawaii.
