In 1971, brother Stephan and Jimmy Tsukayama opened Kailua Bike Shop on Uluniu Street. A year later, the infamous Energy Crisis was upon us. Bike sales soared and with the additional capital the company expanded into the wholesaling of packaged plant items. To appeal to the tourist industry, "Hawaiian Island Creations" was composed in 1972 and Paul Ichimura was commissioned to create the present distinctive symmetrical logo.
In October 1995, HIC opened in Haleiwa Town on the North Shore of Oahu. The next few years brought dramatic changes to the make-up of the company. HIC's first Japan Addition opened in the city of Chiba In April 1997. Presently Coral Head in California is the national HIC clothing license and SFO Hawaii is the surfboard licensee. Internationally, HIC has licensees Europe, Brazil, and Japan.
Today HIC has 7 locations on the island of Oahu and 1 location in Lahaina, Maui. HIC continues to grow with Hawaii and with over 30 years of experience, HIC is still Hawaii's finest surf shop... Enjoy the ride!
