The Surfing Pig is located in Kaimuki, which is considered the dining Mecca of Oahu. It only makes sense to spark some nostalgia to the new restaurant. Our master craftsman, is repurposing the bowling lane from the iconic 59-year-old Waialae Bowl as bar top seating.
After 50 years in business, and despite efforts to reopen, Waialae Bowl’s tenant didn’t want to renew the lease from property owner Kamehameha Schools. Summer 2017, Re-use Hawai’i salvaged the lanes and gutters, and brought the material to its Kakaako warehouse. Wood is a sustainable resource but we must do are part to conserve certain forest resources as is.
Re-use Hawai‘i is proactive about fulfilling their mission of keeping good, reusable material out of our local landfill. Kono’s and The Surfing Pig has continued to support and source materials from Re-use Hawai’i for all our projects. With the ambiance just right, The Surfing Pig will be a gathering hotspot for the emerging local foodies, families, and visitors of Kaimuki, with an urban twist.
