Tourists enjoy surfing and boating near the shore of Waikiki beach in Honolulu, Hawaii, on January 1, 2010. Waikiki, which is a popular tourist destination, was a retreat for Hawaiian royalty in the 1800s. Much like the locals and tourists of today, Hawaiian royalty enjoyed surfing at Waikiki on early forms of longboards.
