    Hey, mike that's what I'm trying to say. Those businesses that takes the time and have the concern for the people safety and their wellbeing that rent from them is in my book the best ones to rent from. And I would word of mouth advertise their business to anyone.
    Unfortunately there's other front line businesses that is not as concerned as your friends and that's the ones that is putting the rescuers life and all others thats involved at risk......
    And like I said if the people was warned of the hazards and signed a waver and went out and gets into trouble then all the weight is all on themselves and not the rental business.
    And yes, that's a good way of doing business.
    You go and tell hour freind he / she has a good attitude and a good head on his shoulders.

    And happy holidays to you and yours

    My friend rents ocean equipment in Kihei, when the conditions are not good they make their customers sign a waiver that they were warned about the ocean conditions prior to rental, he felt it was good business and covered him from liability.

    Yes, they were on their honeymoon. And are very lucky to survive to talk about it. And you're very right about these rental people that they are just thinking about their next buck instead fo the safety of our visitors.

  • Re: Standup Paddle Boarders Rescued in South MauiPosted by Maui_Mike on 11/29/2015 3:04pm

    Not likely that they were warned, these rental places only care about the next dollar, I wonder if they charged the customer for the lost board....I'm glad it worked out ok for the visitors.

  • Re: Standup Paddle Boarders Rescued in South MauiPosted by Stand Alone on 11/29/2015 2:36pm

    Yup, they were very lucky. Five hundred yards out is a long way out. Oh well it'll happen again.
    Wonder if they were informed on high winds warning conditions from the people who rented the sup to them?

  • Re: Standup Paddle Boarders Rescued in South MauiPosted by Maui_Mike on 11/29/2015 11:36am

    Paddling against the wind is difficult, it was nice that people recognized the distress she was in....

  • Re: Standup Paddle Boarder Rescued at HonokowaiPosted by kawika on 11/29/2015 3:51am

    At which time the paddlers should be charged for the rescue services. That's what happens in a lot of alpine environments, and makes sense: if you're planning to go out on the water, you should be cognizant of all possible outcomes. Those rescues cost money and potentially put rescuers' lives at risk.

  • Re: Maui Bicycling League to Hold Sentencing Hearing RidePosted by Iwa on 11/29/2015 3:47am

    Maui County could have built a walk/bike path along Piilani, Kula Hwy, Honoapiilani hwy, just like the one parallel to the Mokulele hwy. In the meantime, until they do build a path use common sense and not ride along a freakin hwy! You are trusting strangers with your life... Everyone has crossed the white lines, at point or another. Even the bicyclists have in their own vehicles... So WHY be naive to play roulette with your life? Lobby the city to build paths and in the meantime load your bike up an go ride on back roads that are lil safer. Very sad story

  • Re: Standup Paddle Boarder Rescued at HonokowaiPosted by Stand Alone on 11/28/2015 5:42pm

    And I still stand on my last comment I've posted on this kind of incidents. ....
    The rental should be responsible on this. They should find out who is the rental company and charge them for the services for this rescue.
    The rental co. Should have warned the visitors that there is a high wind warning at advisory and it wouldn't be a good idea to do sup boarding at that time. But, if they did warned those people and they refused to listen to the warning then it would be out of their control.

  • Re: Maui Bicycling League to Hold Sentencing Hearing RidePosted by Stand Alone on 11/28/2015 12:58pm

    Yeh, I get the same. Many of these cyclists don't realize that they're causing a safty hazards on the road. Mainly because they think that every vehicles on the road don't have the right of way and they think they the cyclists has more rights then the vehicles on the roads. And that's a deadly belief they have about "sharing the roads ". Check it out, many of these cyclists thinks they're in a race or training or something and think that they can ride anyways they like. When I see them riding like that it's ridiculous and stupid! And they don't see that!
    Especially those guys that rides in a tight group like in a race. They do look really intelligent and kinda look like they are really educated kinda guys but, they're STUPID! really, really STUPID!
    Those cyclists say they want the vehicles to share the road but, they The (cyclists ) try to take over the roadways with no care if they are causing problems on the safty to the vehicles on the roads and the flow of traffic (((AND TO THEMSELVES))). ...
    I see that one finger salutes all the time... they think my tractor trailer have more then enough room to pass them when they're riding the line.
    Well, needless to say I show them my flag back....
    But, I have to say many of these bicyclists are riding alot more safely. (The individual, "the solo riders"). But the ones that rides in that tight group is just plain STUPID.......

    Aloha, troll have a safe and happy holidays.....

  • Re: Eight New Cases: Dengue Fever Count Rises to 101Posted by Maui Troll on 11/28/2015 6:01am

    My uncle had this while serving in Navy during WWII. He was on New Guinea. Nasty stuff but he recovered.

  • Re: Maui Bicycling League to Hold Sentencing Hearing RidePosted by Maui Troll on 11/28/2015 5:54am

    Well said. I believe also bicycle riders need to be more aware. Once a bike rider was riding on the road instead of the bike lane. I tapped my horn to let him know I was passing on his left and he returned my courtesy with a one finger salute! Go figure...

  • Re: Maui Bicycling League to Hold Sentencing Hearing RidePosted by Stand Alone on 11/28/2015 3:54am

    Sorry for life that was loss. But, in reality it take two to be safe. Before the life of mr. Hagen was loss the mostly all of the bicyclists use to ride the line all the time.
    And sadly after another life was taken away I've noticed that the cyclists is riding away from the white lines more often. And we've not have too much with cyclists and vehicles incidents lately. But there's still some that still playing Russian roulette on the roads.
    For all of you bicyclists, that skin tight wind resistance suit you put on is not an heavy metal armor suit or bobble raps. ( it won't protect you )!
    Most of you cyclists is adults and drives a car. So you should know what can happen on the roads and so you should all know what to be aware of.
    Don't rely on the vehicle drivers to save your life. Save your own life and be way more aware and alert of all your surroundings especially behind you.
    Don't rely and depend on the laws to keep safe . It's all you....
    Sharing the road is fine but accidents does and will happen. Use your common sense, ride as far as you can from the vehicles line of travel and that will up your chances avoiding being an ex-bicyclists.
    I don't drink or do drugs and I'm totally against driving under the influence of any kind.
    Remember, it takes two but it really Fall on you to be safe and determine your bicycling experience.

    Why in the world is PWF allowed to be a non profit? They've been making bank for years off the whales while doing all they can to squash any competition.

  • Re: Hawaii Hires Rolovich to Coach Warriors’ FootballPosted by MauiBoy5 on 11/28/2015 1:10am

    Great hire, didn't want a coach like JJ who quit on his team this year in SMU.
    Used to see Rolo around Maui as his wife's family lives on Maui and she is a
    Seabury Hall graduate.

    Nice to see the ACLU protecting our right to free speech. Sharing the Love of Christ is not a crime! Live Aloha! Be Pono!

    Judge Bissen, I sincerely hope you give the driver the maximum sentence for his reckless disregard for human life.

  • Re: Maui Bicycling League to Hold Sentencing Hearing RidePosted by Maui Troll on 11/27/2015 7:15am

    I agree. It is time to send a message that driving under the influence will not be tolerated. I would ride my bike more often if I felt safe on the highways.

  • Re: Maui Bicycling League to Hold Sentencing Hearing RidePosted by treewise on 11/27/2015 6:25am

    Buses only give you about one inch. It is suicide to ride on S. Kihei Rd. or Piilani. Bike lanes narrow into nothing as you cross bridges. Motorists are drunk, stoned, or homicidal. Kihei is super dangerous for bike riders.

    Great job guys! Now just put that money to good use to help struggling families and individuals that have fallen on hard times. STOP HANDING OUT FREE MEALS TO ALL THE LAZY DRUNK BUMS. You are just compounding the homeless problem, when you feed the lazy. Plus think about how many extra families you could help, by not just throwing away those funds towards lazy bums
