Explore Hawaii: Hiking – A different way up Koko Head

March 10, 2016 |

We’ve accomplished hiking the Koko Head Railway Trail several times before, in the past years. It’s a short but steep incline type of hike with an appropriate nickname “The Ultimate Stairmaster.” A bit challenging for creaky knees with over 1,000+ steps to the top which offers scenic view for its victors. This day, we took the more mountainous climb up to a natural arch on the crater’s rim. A fun, gusty birthday hike! Read More

40th Annual – Buffalo’s Big Board Surfing Classic (Makaha, HI)

February 14, 2016 |

The events include 9 different types of surfing: four surfboard (10 ft and over) divisions, paipo, alai’a, bodyboard, bullyboard, canoe, SUPsquatch, tandem surfing, and team SUP surfing. It’s an annual event not to miss because it promotes the stoke that surfing gives all of us. It doesn’t feel like any other competition of constant cutbacks for points. Read More

Fortunate to be living in the resting grounds of Hawaii’s spinner dolphins, they touch on our hearts! We’re in their natural environment and the dolphins choose when and how long they want to share their turf with you. So fascinating to observe their behaviors in the ocean but also have the ability to listen to them vocalizing with their squeaks, whistles, and echolocation clicks.

November 18, 2015 |

New to the boating community, this was only our 4th voyage out on the Swell Life. We would’ve typically waiting for a glassy morning to jump aboard "The Swell Life" and go fishing but with gusting winds for days lifting we went out of our comfort zone. Light winds and a few bumps in the ocean from an incoming swell, we head out… not too far from shore… with our fishing gear – Penn fishing poles and squid bait. Here’s a video summarizing 4 hours of our adventure catching Lai and Moano for the first time. Read More
