Na Pali Race 2018

The Na Pali Race 2018 was a great success with a unique 25 mile route for OC1, OC2, and Holopuni Sailing Canoes. With the road to Haena closed due to landslides the race started from Anini beach, Reside Kauai sponsored brothers Waioli and Kailoa Forrest were the first paddle powered boat to the finish line with a 2:36 finish.  The SUP and prone paddlers were shuttled via boat to Haena for the Haena Beach Park start, Reside Kauai SUP 50-59 paddler Derek Moore finished third 2:54 within a few minutes of first place. Kai Lenny was the lone Hydrofoil obliterating the course in 1:19, would have like to watch Kai foil a bit but he was gone! Paul hopes to finish competitively one of these years and is grateful to finish in under 4:00 hours (3:51) beating last years 4:18 time. This event is not for everybody, if you have ever considered paddling the entire Na Pali this is a great opportunity for safe passage with a competitive edge. Come join us or donate to the cause.

2nd Annual B-RAD Festival

Here on the Garden Isle of Kaua'i the B-Rad Foundation is taking action to foster the environmental leaders and stewards of tomorrow. Working with Kaua'i schools we lead middle school students through our three part program based on Environmental Stewardship, Health and Adventure. Using these pillars, Kaua'i students have a chance to learn and take direct action to ensure a brighter future. We also host monthly B-RAD Beach Cleanups to preserve the natural beauty of our island, and to honor Brad through direct community outreach and growth. What started as a grassroots project of close family and friends, has now blossomed into a far reaching community-based effort.

We believe that our children are our most valuable resource and hope for a brighter future. Our "B-Rad Keiki Programs" have now partnered with three different Kaua'i schools and are gearing up for next year as we finish up with our current groups of sixth grade students. There is nothing that makes us happier than to empower the next generation of RAD. Look for us in a Kaua'i middle or elementary school near you!

In our B-Rad Beach Cleanups we have created a strong partnership with Kaua'i Surfrider Foundation. We have been fortunate to be able to use recycling programs to reuse most of all the hard plastics collected in our cleanup efforts as well as the derelict fishing nets. In the last year of clean-ups, we have collected over 90,000 lbs of trash from our shoreline in partnership with Surfrider and other non-profit groups.

2018 Annual Historic Koloa Plantation Days Parade

Saturday July 28th from 10-11am

Horseback and walking units, floral floats, vintage cars, and decorated vehicles are in a 
great hometown parade that celebrates aspects of the workers’ camps in plantation towns. 
Each camp had its ethnic identity, customs, foods, games and sports, music and dance. 
This is a festival signature event, don’t miss it!
The people walking, on decorated floats, on horseback, and in decorated vehicles will do their 
best to capture some aspect of plantation life. They will have colorful costumes, perhaps play 
music or dance, or showcase recreational activities — baseball, chicken fights, fishing, to name 
a few – or their ethnic heritage. Others will capture memories of the sugar era, when sugar 
plantations thrived and many residents worked for or with the sugar industry.
Competition for parade awards is intense and people from the resorts, businesses and community 
groups are very creative, so you can expect the unexpected. From costumes to decorations and 
choreography, they work for weeks and up to parade day to make their ideas become reality. 
While most of us relax and enjoy the parade, the judges seated along the parade route will intently 
scrutinize the units. In the afternoon, the awards for the best in each category are announced at 
Koloa ballpark.
