Watch Lifeguards in Action

Living in Hawai’i, it’s hard to avoid the ocean. And it’s more likely that there’s at least one family member who surfs, swims, or does some sort of water activity. A great movie for any ocean lover, Big Wave Guardians opens in theaters throughout the country today, including Regal Maui Mall Megaplex in Kahului. Big Wave Guardians is a feature-length documentary that tells the dramatic stories of Hawaii’s big wave guardians – the lifeguards who risk their lives in the world’s most dangerous waves. It traces the history of lifeguarding in Hawaii to the development of the Big Wave Risk Assessment Group after the death of big-wave surfer Sion Milosky.

Stop by the Morning Mākeke

An early morning visit to Wailuku town rarely disappoints. This weekend, stop by the Wailuku Jodo Mission for their well-curated, local outdoor market from 8 am to 1 pm. There’s a handful of vendors, so it doesn’t feel too overwhelming to stop by each and every table and talk story. Leave with a bundle of local goodness.

  • Saturday, June 25, 2022
  • 8 am – 1 pm
  • 67 Central Ave, Wailuku
  • Parking is available at Malama I Ke Ola building (Old Ooka’s).
