Cool Site: History of Surfing
Today's pick is another Hawaii site that's been around for a long time, and is frequently updated and improved. The History of Surfing is the online companion for Surfing: the Sport of Kings video chronicling the origins of the sport that was created in ancient Hawaii. You'll find many stories and resources including how early surfboards were made and the King and Queen believed to be the greatest surfers.

Hope you have fun with these web picks. I certainly enjoy sharing them!

Cool Site: Volcanoes Online
Actually Volcanoes Online should be a HOT site, eh? Whichever, this ThinkQuest project from 1998 contains everything you might want to know about volcanoes, including how the different types of volcanoes are formed and where they are located in the world. It's an exceptional site for another reason: it was developed by three students from different countries!

You can find more about Hawaii Volcanoes specifically at Hawaii School Reports.

Cool Site: Honolulu Zoo
The Honolulu Zoo is part of Kapiolani Park at the foot of Diamond Head on the eastern end of Waikiki. The entire park was set aside for the people by King Kalakaua and named in honor of his wife, Queen Kapiolani. In addition to the history, the zoo's Website contains a tour, discussion board (called "talk"), and many photos and enrichment activities, so set aside the time to enjoy it all.

Visiting the Honolulu Zoo is almost as fun virtually as in person!

Cool Site: Hawaii Weather Today
Much more than just a weather report! For residents and visitors, there's weather by type of activity as well as extended forecasts and an interesting daily narrative. But you'll also find great photos, satellite images of Hawaii and the North/East Central Pacific Ocean. Home page of Hawaii Weather Today

Cool Site: Oahu Lifeguards
The Oahu Lifeguards web site is an excellent introduction to the wonders and the dangers of the ocean waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands. You can find photos and information for the many guarded beaches on the island of Oahu. Ocean safety topics include: Dangerous Ocean Critters; Sharks of Hawaii; Beach & Ocean Hazards; Ocean Safety Signs; and Be Sun Safe & Sensible. You can also learn what lifeguards do and find out what you can do to support them. With the start of summer and vacations, there's info here that's useful beyond Oahu's shores!
