Each winter, Oahu's rugged North Shore serves up some of the largest and imposing ocean waves on the planet. Giant, storm-generated swells make their long trek across the northern Pacific to batter reef breaks and the area's shoreline.
Due to its natural beauty, proximity to Honolulu, and large waves, the North Shore is a popular area for filming. The Fox Network TV show North Shore was filmed in the area, as were the last few seasons of Baywatch. ABC's Lost was also filmed almost entirely on O'ahu, with much of it filmed on the North Shore. The area of Turtle Bay features rock formations and constant rolling surf, making it ideal as a backdrop for Lost.
The North Shore was also the setting for the movies North Shore, Blue Crush, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, as well as being fictionalized for the animated film Surf's Up.
The sixth episode of the first season of the CBS series Hawaii Five-0 was set on the North Shore and titled "Koʻolauloa", the Hawaiian-language term for the area.
This couple headed for the beach just as the last squalls of the front had passed through. It turned out to be a nice morning for a walk on the beach at Turtle Bay after all.
