The Summer Slide
Join Us For The Summer Slide!
The Hawaiians of old called surfing He'e Nalu, or "wave sliding." It's a perfectly fitting description for the pastime that's helped to define one of the many gifts these treasured islands have given the world. With that in mind, we're excited to debut the Summer Slide, a seasonal celebration of the magic moments that make summertime in Honolulu oh-so special. And while we're eagerly anticipating the next south swell with bated breath, surfing won't be the only sliding we're doing this hot season. We're taking this mantra to heart and slidin' right on through the summer. Whether we're soaking in the sun, barbecuing with friends, catching the new surf-inspired exhibits at the IBM Building, or sippin' on a refreshing cocktail and catching a new surf flick at the IBM building, we're basking in the hot season like never before. Join us as we make some waves this hot season.
