Oahu: Town and Country—Waikiki Beach Access and Plastic Free Haleiwa

The island of Oahu continues to lead the charge on both shores.

On the south shore the Surfrider Oahu Chapter loaded up a trolley of stoked people and took the protest on the road through downtown Honolulu. They passed Ala Moana Shopping center, cruised through Waikiki, Kaimuki, and up Kalanianaole Hwy., and visited 5 of the 10 rally locations on Oahu. They drove for 3 hours from the Capitol to Portlock and back, raising awareness for improved shoreline access. From what I hear, they demanded...and got some attention. Kudos to this crew for their execution and staying power on this very important issue.
