The Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu’s North Shore presents their winter “Talk Story” interview series featuring top athletes, filmmakers and shapers. “Talk Story” is the tradition of personally sharing important stories to preserve them for future generations. Surfing is full of colorful, charismatic and creative characters whose contributions to the world span far beyond the waves. Held every Thursday night at Turtle Bay Resort’s Surfer the Bar, “Talk Story” brings surfing’s legends and their tall but true tales directly to you and a live audience.
