Lani's: great beach, great surf

Surfrider Foundation is urging surfers to protest against the construction of a barricade at Laniakea Beach in Oahu, Hawaii.

The Hawaii Department of Transportation (DOT) has plans to barricade the Laniakea Support Park across from Laniakea Beach, in a misguided effort to reduce traffic.

"Though well-intended, Hawaii DOT's efforts will result in blocked parking and blocked access to one of the most popular and well-loved public beaches on Oahu's North Shore", Surfrider explains.

The surf NGO believes DOT could use existing laws and ordinances to prevent tour buses and vans from stopping by the side of the road, which is the real problem.

But instead, they are blocking all parking and access to a public park and preventing law-abiding citizens and tourists alike from visiting their favorite beach and surf spot.

Lani's gets over 600,000 visitors annually. Other preferred options include installing a light and crosswalk or altering Kamehameha Hwy to the Mauka side of the current park, allowing for parking on the Makai side.

A German company specialized in designing and build wake park features announced the creation of the world's first floating outdoor surf pool.
