    So this is an interesting show, wonder if it was MTV’s answer to Hawaii after Maui Fever failed and disappeared?!? It makes no claims about Hawaiian heritage for all cast members, just a shared love of surfing and relaxing. I though it was crazy that the one guy Alex disappeared and took off paddling god knows where. I get that this is an ancient Hawaiian thing, but face it, a lot of them dies. And he didn’t tell anyone where he was going. When people usually do that for records they have a chase boat. But in the end he lived to tell a good story.moreless

    The introductory episode of "Living Lahaina" is anything but subtle. The narrator will guide you through the cast of characters at Kimo's Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy, but time does not stand still for the rowdy wave boys.



    Rebellious employee behavior soon degenerates into frat boy behavior worthy of the title "testosterone toxic." Windows break, vomit flys, booze guzzles, babes nuzzle, clothes vanish, bikinis stretch, a boss fumes, girl friends fume, the Coast Guard roams, a boss cries, and a boss praises.



    Alex sets himself up as a legendary risk taker, idiot, carouser, and surfer. One can only guess what he'll do next. That's the hook. Many will stay tuned to see what this bad surfer dude will do next.moreless

    • Narrator: The first day of summer. The tourist season was in full swing. That morning the boys of Royal Hawaiian were getting together for the annual kickoff meeting. One by one these titans of the surf industry assembled; but it started with a couple of kids who liked to surf. Grown into a full business thanks to one man, their boss [Kimo].
