  • Waikiki Beach Walk-and-Talk: Navigating with Ka`iulani Murphy

    Destination: Oahu

    pvs navigator kaiulani murphy walks waikiki beachThe sun was setting behind a bank of clouds off Waikiki when I met Ka`iulani Murphy on the beach fronting Outrigger Reef on the Beach. Conditions weren’t perfect for a green flash. They weren’t even great for picture-taking, but the nightly sunset-watching crowd had emerged just the same. This was back in January.

If it does rain in Waikiki, the sun often shines right through the raindrops.)

    Destination: Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, Oahu

    curling ocean waveThis week in Hawaii, we are expecting monster surf the likes of which we haven’t seen for over a decade. Everyone’s throwing around the number 50. As in fifty-foot high waves. And people, no doubt, will be riding them. But not competitors in "The Eddie.”
