Standup Paddling in the Ala Wai Canal


I'm proud to announce that the Waikiki's leg of Honolulu's controversial Light Rail is open for business years ahead of schedule. All aboard.



It was so clear today at Makapuu Pt. that you could see Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island (Hawaii). You gotta like the captions. 



As a community reminder, road crews are currently shoring up the clifts adjacent the highway that winds down to Makapuu Beach, and the road is closed at nights. Even during in the day, steel plates make things a bit hairy if you're riding a motorbike like me.

Wonder if either or both fell in and had a taste of the Ala Wai?

Nate- there's no skill involved in stand up paddling. Maybe when they stop, they might lose their balance, but other than that they're making a pest of themselves. Been to Ala Moana beach lately? It's ridiculous there.
