About your host

Aloha! My name is Kai! Kai is the Hawaiian word for the ocean or the sea. I’m a surfer and open ocean swimmer. I’ve competed in many ocean swims on Oahu and the Big Island. I surf almost everyday and I love to teach others to surf or swim safely in the ocean. I’m a former lifeguard, swim instructor and swim coach. I’m also certified in CPR and First Aid. I have an innate comfort in the ocean…
