Ala Moana Bowls Webcam  - a SURFLINE webcam

The following information is from the website Ward Village

While the surfing world has fought tooth and nail to preserve natural lineups across the world, Ala Moana Bowls can actually credit its formation to the man-made extension of Magic Island. In the 1960s, there was a famous right-hand peak known as Garbage Dumps, which was featured in the original Endless Summer surf flick. But in the '60s, the city extended Magic Island, which effectively crushed Garbage Dumps, but also serendipitously created the famed lineup at Ala Moana Bowls that we've all come to love today

When it comes to waves that have literally changed the history of surfing, Bowls stands at the head of the pack. In the 1970s, the likes of Gerry Lopez, Buttons Kaluhiokalani, Larry Bertlemann, and Mark Liddell practically rewrote the book on tuberiding and progressive surfing right here in Town. It would be fair to say that during a stretch of time in the 1970s, Bowls was home to the most futuristic surfing on the planet.
