Surfing competition You don't need to hop a plane to Waikiki Beach in Oahu, Hawaii, or Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia, to watch some of the world's top surfers ride the waves this summer. Just take the drive south to Virginia Beach, Wednesday through Aug. 27 and catch the 44th annual East Coast Surfing Championship. More than 100 professional surfers from around the globe and about 300 amateurs will compete for more than $35,000 in cash and prizes at the event. There also will be skateboarding, volleyball, skimboarding and swimsuit competitions, as well as an oceanfront 5K run, extreme sports demonstrations, food concessions and live music from groups such as the Violent Femmes, Tonic and the Pietasters.

Honolulu, on Hawaii's island of Oahu, is a city rich in both history and beauty. Sixty-seven years ago today, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, killing nearly 2,400 people and wounding more than 1,000. Jan. 17 will mark the 115th anniversary of the bloodless coup in which American colonists overthrew the Hawaiian monarchy. And on Jan. 20, more history will be made: The Honolulu-born Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th U.S. president. If you want to experience some of Honolulu's beauty, head to Waikiki Beach for white sand and cerulean ocean.

WAIKIKI BEACH, Hawaii -- Sometimes you don't have to grow up. Sometimes a man can be a boy forever.A century's worth of progress has rendered the streets of Waikiki cluttered and teeming. But just offshore, the arc of Mamala Bay and the pulse of the Pacific still converge and form a small wave as lovely and gentle as exists. And some of the men who ride these waves persist with a free-spirited, ocean-loving life like nowhere else: the Waikiki Beach boy.Here, a youngster can aspire to surf and swim, to paddle the outriggers and sail the catamarans.

My Best Shot Mike Haskel, Baltimore A door to remember in the Yucatan Peninsula This summer, after I finished ninth grade, my family traveled to Mexico for 10 days. We rented a car and drove around the Yucatan Peninsula, exploring beaches, inland jungles and Mayan ruins. But sometimes just walking around towns was also enjoyable and gave a view of the local way of life. This photograph of a colorful door with a religious cross on it was taken during a walk through Ticul, a busy town not far from the ruins of Uxmal.
