Another Reason to Live in Hawaii: The 2011 Pipeline Masters

2011 Pipeline Masters

Oahu is home to some of the biggest and best waves in the world, and is known as the "Mecca" of surfing.  One of surfing's biggest events rolled through the North Shore of Oahu this past weekend. The 2011 Pipeline Masters was the final jewel of surfing's coveted Triple Crown and final stop on the ASP's World Tour. Huge waves between 10-15 feet challenged the planet's best surfers which included 2011 World Champ Kelly Slater, tour veterans Joel Parkinson, Taj Burrow, and Fred Patacchia, along with upstarts Julian Wilson, Gabriel Mendina, and Hawaii's own John John Florence.

The Ultimate Hawaii Condo Buying Guide

The great thing about buying a condo is that you can get ultra-cool amenities, such as pools, tennis courts, gym facilities, even upscale perks like restaurants and spas; low maintenance; and great locations for a fraction of the price of a single-family home.

Little wonder many people are shedding the yard work and home repair chores that eat up their weekends for the low-maintenance condo lifestyle. The advantages of condo living — lower costs, less maintenance, and more amenities — make downsizing and up-scaling appealing to many. But making the move also includes some additional adjustments, such as paying a monthly maintenance fee and having to abide by the condo’s house rules.
