Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort

A new Waikiki Surf History Wall curated by Bishop Museum exhibit designer Michael Wilson is now on display in the second-floor lobby of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort. The wall’s visual storytelling celebrates the history and future of surfing in Waikīkī while a resort tour offers guests an opportunity to meet legends of the sport before heading to Faith Surf School on the beach fronting Outrigger Waikiki to rent a board and surf. As part of the resort’s Surfer In Residence program, guests can meet and greet the key surfer in residence for the month.
