December 2018/January 2019
Our December/January issue is always our biggest, so it’s a fitting place for our epic feature on the EPIC5—a grueling endurance challenge in which elite athletes attempt five Ironman triathlons on five islands in five days. We spend some time in Waikīkī, with a feature story about the vanishing bungalows still to be found among the gleaming high-rises and resorts and a photo essay about the "Waikīkī Wall,” where visitors and residents alike gather. Also in this issue: the gateway to a lifetime of angling, ‘oama fishing; surfing coach Rainos Hayes; relearning the art of carving ki’i; a look back at Hawai’iʻs moment in skateboarding history; a groundbreaking new exhibit at the Honolulu Museum of Art; and the hardest-working band in kid show-biz, Uncle Wayne and the Howling Dogs. We hope you enjoy reading this issue as much as we did making it and as always mahalo for reading!
