The North Shore is synonomous with Haleiwa so your search here will mirror a search of Haleiwa wtih some smaller adjacent neighborhoods included. Haleiwa (pronounced Holly-eeva) got its name from the hotel built there in 1898. In Hawaiian it means Hale "house" and Iwa which is actually a "frigate bird". I guess he may have meant "bird house" but probably not. Haleiwa is synonymous with "North Shore" here on the Island as are used somewhat interchangeably. The population is around 4000 until the winter months when the famous north shore waves draw surfers from all over the world, and the population goes through the roof. The big surf days in the winter also draw a constant stream of tourists from all over the island to watch young men risk a lot for the thrill (being scared to death on the face of a 40 foot wave might also be called a thrill) of surviving in unbelievable sized waves. Lives are lost every year as surfers push their limits against a very unforgiving ocean and picture taking tourists are swept of the rocks trying to get one more photo up close (too close). Its a great place in the summer as well as there are very small waves and great diving and snorkeling take the place of death defying surfing.
