Maui passes tobacco-free beaches & parks bill...No Ka Oi

Maui community celebrates new bill on Earth Day

28 April, High school students, community leaders and environmental groups celebrated Earth Day with the passage of a bill banning tobacco use at all Maui County parks, beaches and recreational facilities. 

The movement to create smoke-free beaches began in January when a group of high school students led an island-wide cleanup and collected more than 14,000 cigarette butts in under two hours.  Students worked with Surfrider’s Maui Chapter, the Coalition for a Tobacco-Free Hawaii and Sustainable Coastlines to organize the cleanup and then present their findings to the Mayor and County Council members....

Catching up with Bethany Hamilton

You might think you know everything there is to know about surfer Bethany Hamilton, but she’d tell you differently. Her story has commanded headlines ever since she lost her left arm in a 2003 shark attack while surfing in Hawaii. Her subsequent comeback to the world of professional surfing was the basis of the 2011 film Soul Surfer. And her 2013 wedding was blurbed in People magazine. As an inspiration to millions of people worldwide, it’s no surprise that Hamilton has lived much of her life in the spotlight.


If you missed it now you can catch it on OC250 Sunday!

See all the action of the Surf n Sea Women's Pipe Pro that Bethany won last month! The PWP will rebroadcast on Oceanic SURF Channel 250 & 1250HD all day/all night on Sunday, 4/27 (after the Bells live broadcast period ends).  We’ll replay it multiple times over the 12 mo. This is an ASP World Tour sanctioned event.

Every day is Earth Day with these 5 easy steps

We think it’s pretty safe to say everyone wants to help protect our oceans and waterways. If you don’t, well, you’ve got a cold heart, friend. You’ve also seriously underestimated how much we depend on having a source of clean drinking and bathing water, and a healthy, sustainable source of edible marine food. But we also understand that the thought of tackling the issues threatening these waterways can be a little overwhelming when you’ve got dry cleaning and deadlines.
