Surfing in Hawaii
Oahu, Hawaii has surfing for both beginners and pros. For the novice, a trip to Waikiki between March and May is your best bet for calm waves. Expert surfers can head out between November and February for pro waves along the North Shore. Popular spots include Sunset Beach, Pupukea Beach, and Banzai Pipeline. Reuters

Hawaii's North Shore has long been the go-to place for the world's surfers as they look to ride its celebrated and dangerous waves, but now it seems the renowned surfing area is attracting a different kind of show-off.

Eric Sterman filmed this video using his Chinese-built DJI quadcopter drone and a GoPro camera, getting far closer than any helicopter could and for a lot less money. The drone costs around $479, and the GoPro will cost anything from $199 to $399 depending on accessories.
