Seasoned Pros offer November WindSurfing Camp @ Four Seasons Maui

Ride the wind with Shawna Cropas and Matt Pritchard while living la dolce vita in Wailea, Nov. 10 – 15

Calling all Weekend Warriors: This November the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea is offering its first in-house, all-inclusive windsurfing camp at the tony Hawaiian hotel. Eight entrants will spend breakfast, lunch, dinner and all the in between water time breathing surf and wind with two professionals in the field. 

Perfect Pairing: Poke, Sauvignon and a Maui Sunset

One Wailea resort sets out to indulge, explore and exploit two complimentary flavors

Sometimes, and might we stress that it isn’t often, a big resort “gets it right” and presents a unique pairing of events that is out-of-the-box and utterly enticing. Take the Makena Beach Resort in beautiful Wailea, Maui; they’ve brought together the world’s youngest master sommelier (Honolulu’s own Patrick Okubo), and that delightfully Hawaiian treat—poke—for an evening that will explore the finer aspects of both. 

Tap the Rock: Brewfest Endures, Tsunami or Otherwise

This March 70 Brewers Descend onto the Big Island

It’s that magical time of year again: When the Big Island lava surges (with gusto, we might add), the winds come sweeping down from the Holualoa coffee belt... and a sumptuous variety of ale flows effortlessly from hundreds of taps at the Kona Brewers Festival. While it may be two months away (March 10, 2012), there’s no time like the now to plan your “Brews for the Big Rock” weekend so you can maximize your Hawai‘i Island experience.

Waimea's Ocean Film Festival, This January

Big Island is the Place for Gathering Ocean-Savvy Filmmakers

On the successful heels of this past December’s Kona Surf Film Festival at the Mauna Lani Resort, the 2nd Annual Waimea Ocean Film Festival will unfold this January on the Big Island of Hawai‘i with a series of deep water-related flicks, special presentations, panels and filmmaker meet-and-greets.

Yoga, Healing, Music and Festivities on Oahu's North Shore

If you've ever wished that you could immerse yourself with premiere yoga instruction from a variety of teachers from around the globe—all without without spending a fortune on travel—your wish has come true. The annual Hawai‘i Spirit Festival, which takes place on O‘ahu's North Shore from November 4–6, is a three day celebration of yoga, music, movement and Hawaiian Culture.

Sammy Hagar to Distill Rum on Maui

Red Rocker sees Green in Hawaii Liquor

Sammy Hagar, of Van Halen fame (or infamy, depending on which side of the fence you pump your fist), is headed to Hawai‘i this November to bestow a special little treat on the residents of Alohaland—and eventually the world. It seems "Mr. Tequila" is branching out into the distillation world, this time down rum avenue (like a good pirate). And the fruits of his labor will be only available to Hawai‘i residents for the first few months of production. 

Walk Off the Edge (for a good cause)

Rappel Down the Sheraton Waikiki and Help Special Olympics

A rather creative publicity "stunt" is underway in Honolulu—and, with the community's support and enthusiasm, stands to raise many thousands of dollars for a wonderful cause. "Over the Edge of Waikiki" is the proper name that bridges Special Olympics Hawaii, Starwood Resorts & Hotels Hawaii and a few good thrill-seekers interested in a safe (albeit hair raising) activity.

Giddy-Up: Kualoa Ranch Spotlights Cowgirls

For the aspiring cowgirls out there… The second annual Ohana Country Fair and All-Girl Rodeo will kick off at Kualoa Ranch on O‘ahu’s North Shore this October 1st, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free for this family-friendly event that boasts food, crafts, ranch games like barrel racing, roping, calf mugging and so forth.

Taste the Big Isle Range

Growing Food Fest Features All-Things Meat (and Delicious)

Every fall on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island, ranchers, cowboys (and gals), foodies and farmers walk past a few parrots, cross over a tram track, climb a staircase, pass a fleet of bronze sculptures, head over a babbling brook and descend into an expansive ballroom inside the Hilton Waikoloa Village for the annual Taste of the Hawaiian Range and Ag Festival. This year the action takes place on Friday, September 30, and you best start saving your appetite.

Fare the Wind: 40 Years of Voyaging

Recently brought to our attention was a long-time favorite, Fair Wind Big Island Ocean Guides’ receipt of two significant awards—a Small Business Administration award and a local Chamber of Commerce “Environmental Awareness” award. The ocean expedition company acknowledged these accomplishments just as they began celebrations for their 40th year in business—that is, taking eager ocean-enthusiasts to Kealakekua Bay (and elsewhere on the Kohala Coast) to experience the vibrant underwater life that persists in Hawai‘i.
