Oahu Surfing Guide: Ka He’e Nalu i O’ahu

Oahu Surfing Guide: Ka He’e Nalu i O’ahu

All amazing photos in this Oahu Surfing Guide are courtesy of Matt Heirakuji. Surfing isn’t just a sport. It’s the bond shared between people and the ocean that humans have known for hundreds (maybe even thousands) of years. It’s an expression of self, of culture, and of one’s innermost longings to find stillness in world of chaos. And it all began right here in sweet sweet Polynesia. Lucky for us, surfing has evolved to capture a broad audience, with breaks…

Affordable Golf on Maui at Maui Nui Golf Club

Affordable Golf on Maui at Maui Nui Golf Club

Greens fees can equal plane fares in Hawaii, but not at Mui Nui, home to affordable golf and unbeatable weather.  Maui’s year-around warm and sunny weather makes it an ideal golfing destination.  But as more than one vacationing golfer has discovered, tropical islands come with tropical rains that can cancel a golf outing quicker than you can say albatross. In Kihei, on the dry South Coast, rain remains a rarity even in the wet season, giving the ocean-side community the…

Kolohe Kai’s Enchanting ‘Summer to Winter’ Odyssey

Kolohe Kai’s Enchanting ‘Summer to Winter’ Odyssey

Being among the most recognizable artists in Hawaii is more often challenging than it is glamorous. Just ask Iration, or better yet, Henry Kapono. It means living up to higher expectations each time. Kolohe Kai set those expectations for themselves early on, so in many ways it’s themselves they have to live up to.  Since making a splash on the local airwaves in 2009, Kolohe Kai has released 3 albums and a handful of singles in recent years. The “rascals…

Jurassic Park III (2001) Filming Locations

Jurassic Park III (2001) Filming Locations

The Jurassic Park franchise will forever be synonymous with Hawaii. It’s unlikely the next movie will return here for filming, though, considering that 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom blew Isla Nublar to smithereens. But there’s always the second island, Isla Sorna, where both The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III are set. The former included shoots at the Na Pali Coast and Kipu Beach on Kauai but was predominantly filmed in California’s redwood forests. Jurassic Park III filming…

Hiking Lahaina Pali Trail

Hiking Lahaina Pali Trail

My New Year’s Resolution for 2019 was to go on more hikes. (Okay, to at least go on 1 hike.) You’d think this wouldn’t be a problem with all the outdoor opportunities afforded to me as a Maui local, but as someone who spends most of his waking hours typing on a laptop, the concept of hiking is its own mountain to climb. So when my friends pitched me to go with them on the Lahaina Pali Trail – which…
