For connoisseurs of surfing around the world, there is hardly any tempting place than the Banzai Pipeline in the north of Oahu (Hawaii). In winter, waves reach 10 meters, causing the rush of athletes and the audience's horror. Hawaii is the historical homeland of surfing. This place was also chosen by people who have no relation to sport. Winter time they come here with binoculars, because at this time of year you can see humpback whales migrating from Alaska. Tourist’s number in winter is not less than in the summer. On the islands live a lot of Hollywood celebrities, for example Cameron Diaz. Quite often you can see them attending beach parties.
