Most of us think of Hawaii as an idyllic vacation paradise and a place of majestic natural beauty. But filmmaker Christopher Kahunahana’s Waikiki changes that, presenting a dark portrait of a woman tormented by an abusive ex, and the odyssey that unfolds after she hits a homeless man with her van.

Nature’s fury is on full display in this short film that takes us inside the harrowing 2018 volcanic eruption of Kilauea on Hawaii’s big island. Photographers Lance Page, Michael Lienau, G. Brad Lewis, and Adrian Hein each captured a portion of the spectacular footage, which ranges from massive smoke plumes, to rivers of fire.

FPV drone pilot Nicolas Gaillard was invited to Oahu by Beautiful Destinations to capture aerial footage of some of Hawaii’s most spectacular sights. We think he did a masterful job zooming around the skies and shooting amazing imagery of the island’s natural splendor.

Gavin Heffernan of Sunchaser Pictures shot this mindbending time-lapse of the skies over Hawaii’s big island, capturing clouds rolling by below, and the stars overhead, stationing his camera outside the Mauna Kea Observatories, nearly 14,000 feet above sea level.

Incredible footage captured via drone as it flies towards an unusual development on Kalapana Hawaii, where a chunk of cliff cracked off and exposed a lava tube which now sprays a huge torrent of liquid hot magma into the Pacific. (Thanks Orion!)

Dawn of Fire

Dawn of Fire

Tyler Hulett presents a fascinating look at the destructive power of the lava that continues to flow forth at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, as the tiniest bits of greenery struggle to return to the site of a once-vibrant rainforest, and former home of the Royal Gardens subdivision.

We just went off-roading in the new Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, but what we didn’t mention was that we flew to Hawaii to do it. Here’s a brief highlight video of some of the sights we saw on our way to Hana Ranch for the drive.

Toyota’s most rugged mid-size pickup yet, the new Tacoma TRD Pro rides on 2.5″ FOX Shocks, is wider, taller, has a 35º approach angle, and a 1/4″ skid plate to protect components. We dig the blacked out grille, hood scoop, and overfenders. Read our full review on 95octane.

Our Awesome Kona Adventure

Our fitness expert Jamie Labriola headed to Kona, Hawaii to check out the new Oakley Radar Pace smart eyewear and the IRONMAN World Championship. While there, she took in some of the sights, from awe-inspiring beaches, to incredible marine life, to an active volcano.

Kilauea: The Fire Within

Kilauea: The Fire Within

Photographer Lance Page’s latest short film explores the ominous beauty of Hawaii’s highly active Kilauea volcano. We’re always amazed that photographers don’t melt their gear (or worse) capturing the searing hot lava flows.

Mark Visser, with specially engineered LED lighting built into his buoyancy vest and board, became the first to night surf at Jaws off Maui, mainly on feel, in a surreal 2 am session. (Thanks Jonathan!)
