It all started in 1915 on this very beach. Now, more than a hundred years later, we will be back with this unique type of beach volleyball!

Waikiki is arguably the yolk that gave birth to beach culture as we know it, its surfing royalty and their celebration of surf and sand inspiring generations of adventurous sports folks and beach lovers to enjoy health-giving sports under the sun: One of which is beach volleyball.

In the early 1900s the first manifestations of the game were recorded on Waikiki’s white sands. Here, members of the Outrigger Beach and Canoe Club had marked out a court and were playing a sandy version of William G Morgan’s volleyball.

The beach huts and palm forests of old Waikiki may have been replaced by a jungle of swish hotels and exclusive boutiques but the rolling waves and white sands of Waikiki still draw crowds of surfers and beach volleyball players. There are two permanent volleyball courts at Fort DeRussy and a tone of other spots to pitch a net and play. You might even get a game with resident Olympian Kevin Wong or team up with one of the many local aces from the Hawaii Beach Volleyball Association. You better be good!

Off court there’s plenty to keep visitors stocked. Perhaps ride Waikiki’s mellow surf, which is perfect for beginners or push your wave-riding skills to the limit at Waimea Bay, Banzai Pipeline or Sunset Beach, home of the O’Neill World Cup of Surfing.

Steeped in beach volleyball history and with a local population hyped on the sport this sun-soaked leg of the series promises to be off the hook!
