Hui! Hawaii Kai!!

People are sign-waving all along Kalanianaole Hwy. this morning with surfboards and fishing poles, kids and candy to show their support open beach access. And they are getting lots of support in return. “We’re getting lots of shakas, lots of horn-honking,” said Annmarie of the Livable Hawaii Kai Hui, “I think it is really an eye-opener for people see us standing all along the street where there’s no beach access.”

The trolley just past Wailupe Circle on Kalanianaole Hwy. where gates for residents only deny the public access to these east shore surf spots.

The gates also hide the sad reality of shoreline armament all along the coast. Beach-front property owners have amputated the shore from the ocean by building seawalls and jetties on the edge of their property line.
