#TBT (Throwback Thursday) takin’ it back to the 90’s surf TV show, H3O, “Hawaiian Heavy Water TV.” This classic program originated in Hawai’i and included surf, skate and snowboarding. H3O’s old school videos feature athletes, competitions, surf spots and swell dynamics. H3O nationally broadcasted many surf events, including those that still take place around the world today.
The show itself has become a part of surf history in its contribution to surf media. In today’s Throwback Thursday clip, legendary big wave chargers Mark Foo and Mike Latronic host H3O, as surfers like Kelly Slater and Duke Kahanamoku paddle out at Pipeline on Oahu’s famous North Shore.
Learn how to check the surf with the Professor of Oceanography, Dr. Richard Grigg from the University of Hawai’i.
