There are many reasons to drive to the westside of O’ahu, fair weather, great surf, epic sunsets, and T&C Hawaii Surf Shop at Ka Makana Ali’i! If you live on this side of the island, then you likely know what a pleasurable experience shopping at Ka Makana Ali’i can be. If you live elsewhere, stopping by on your next visit to the leeward side is highly recommended!
Serving the growing community out west, Ka Makana Ali’i is to the leeward side, what Ala Moana Center is to town: your one stop shopping and entertainment destination. Here you can back-to-school shop at T&C Surf, grab some health supplements from GNC, do a workout at 24 Hour Fitness, grab dinner at Cheesecake Factory, and see a movie at ‘Olino. The open air venue and family vibe is inviting to both locals and visitors. The ample parking makes it easy to access, as does a courtesy shuttle going to and from many of the nearby resorts.
The T&C Hawaii Surf Shop at Ka Makana Ali’i is our newest addition. We were one of the first stores open when the mall premiered in 2016. Since then, the mall has grown to include top brands such as Victoria's Secret and Rip Curl, to local businesses like Koa Pancake House and Razor Sports. There’s even a Foodland Farms, so you can truly shop til you drop. If you do, there’s also a Hampton Inn & Suites, as well as a Straub Medical Urgent Care Clinic. The diversity of shops that you’ll find at Ka Makana Ali’i is vast, with a bit of something for all ages and walks of life. The food selection is impressive as well with delicacies from all over the world, such as Sakura Teppanyaki Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar, Sugarcane Chop House, CPK, The Olive Garden, Kickin’ Kajun, and the aforementioned Cheesecake Factory, only one of two on the island.
Inside Hawaii’s surf shop at T&C Ka Makana Ali’i, you’ll find apparel from top surf brands like RVCA, Billabong, and Volcom men’s and women’s wear, as well as accessories from greats like Herschel, Yeti, and Electric Eyewear.

Beyond the merchandise is the backbone of Hawaii’s surf shop, our dedicated and loyal T&C staff and ohana. Each of our six store locations is run by a long standing member of our company. The surf shop at Ka Makana Ali’i is no exception. Braddah Vincent Delgado-Wells started out on the sales floor at our former Waikiki Trade Center location back in 2005. As the years went on, he became a supervisor at Pearlridge, Assistant Manager at Windward Mall, Store Manager at our former Ward Center, and now 17 years later, he’s Store Manager for Ka Makana Ali'i. “Braddah Vince” along with his crew at T&C Surf Ka Makana Ali’i, including surf team rider, Sive Jarrard, are keeping the tradition alive of what a surf shop is: a place for the watermen and women to find all they need to keep them in the water, active, healthy, and loving the surf. Stop in next time you’re on your way to nearby surf spots like Tracks, White Plains, and Shark Country. We’re located off Kapolei Parkway between Ewa Beach and Kapolei.
