Aloha and E Komo Mai!
Welcome to the International Tandem Surfing Association's growing community of tandem surfers, supporters and fans from around the world. Combining partner lifts with traditional longboarding, the unique sport of tandem surfing has wowed spectators for decades. Starting in the 1920s with the legendary Waikiki Beach Boys, Duke Kahanamoku is arguably the most famous Beach Boy of that bygone era and is also the father of modern day tandem surfing.
Over the years, the playful antics of the Beach Boys taking tourists out for a once in a lifetime ride on the rolling waves of Waikiki (a great way to find a date back then!) has evolved into a highly skilled sport of daring acrobatics on surf that continues to challenge our athletes to push the boundaries of what is possible on water.
