The eastern side of Waikiki Beach is separated by the protruding cement pier known as “The Wall” this is where some of the first bodyboarders like Kainoa, Dean Marzol, Keith Sasaki, Kavan Okimura and Parker Tom learnt there competitiveness and tricks by surfing right up to the pier, and sometimes making it clear over the wall. The Wall is a man made structure to help protect sand erosion and the beach here is officially called Kuhio Beach.The Wall was where small wave high performance bodyboarding first evolved.
