Surf’s up! Let’s go surfin’ down memory lane.

Gidget Goes Hawaiian is a 1961 movie that starred… wait are you thinking Sandra Dee? Wrong. This movie stared Deborah Walley, in the sequel. James Darren played Moondoggie or Moondoggey, depending on the spelling.

Elvis Presley filmed Blue Hawaii in 1961, with a surfboard yet! Hard to imagine when you think of later photographs isn’t it? The movie was set at the Coco Palms resort in Kauai. Abandoned, people still talk about resurrecting it. If you travel to Hawaii Kai, you’ll be at the site of the beach house in the movie. Presley also filmed Girls, Girls, Girls in 1962 and Paradise Hawaii in 1965 in the Aloha State.

Ride the Wild Surf was a 1964 movie filmed on the North shore of Oahu. It starred Fabian, Tab Hunter and Shelly Fabares as college-age surfers attacking the big waves. The three stars were respectively between the ages of 21 and 33, but who’s counting? Waimea Bays site of the film, and 30 foot waves thanks to a Jan and Dean song is a surfer mecca. You can get the surf report for Waimea Bay, which as of today, the waves are between two and four feet high (November 22, 2010), and you’ve got rideable waves, in case you are motivated by the words: “Surf’s up!”

The surf movies gave us 50’s and 60’s words like hodad, beach bums and bunnies and Big Kahuna. A hodad is someone who pretends he or she is a surfer, but they really aren’t. (Think: it’s like people who pretend they are politicians but aren’t, today). A beach bum or bunny hung around looking cool. They aren’t unlike ski bums and ski bunnies.

No, the Big Kahuna isn’t your boss, even though he or she claims the title if only in their head. Cliff Robertson played the part in the 50’s/60’s, but the prototype was Hawaiian Duke Kanahanamoku, a legend, a surfer exceptionally good at what he did, though the above boss might not be.

Beach movies never lacked for scenes at Waikiki Beach, which is located on the South shore of Honolulu. This is the place where people go to experience surfing beaches, and to see Diamond Head.

Are you ready? Duke Kahanamoku surfed here, and surfing is taught in his legendary memory. Follow paths of surfboards to attractions!

Waikiki is near Pearl Harbor, and a fantastic array of Hawaiian food to eat after your surfing adventures. Need we even talk about fresh Hawaiian food? Where else can you get fish this fresh and pineapple that is a “REAL,” ripened on the vine and tastes nothing at all like what you buy in the store. How about bananas! You’ll get spoiled, but what a wonderful spoiling it is after a day of fresh air, sun and surf. Even a luau with a roast pig has an allure. For a night, a day, a week, you are Moondoggie and Gidget living a dream.
