WAIMANALO SUNSET ON THE BEACH UPDATE
Waimanalo Sunset on the Beach will be showing Don King’s world-renowned surfing film, The Day, followed by The Rundown, on Saturday, September 11, 2004 at the Waimanalo Beach Park.
The Day is a story of the best surfing conditions at Peahi Beach, also known as “Jaws”, on the Island of Maui. The Day celebrates the heart, mind and soul of big wave surfing at the mecca of tow-in-surfing, “Jaws.”
On November 26, 2002, a melting of variables create the world’s largest rideable waves and a day the surfing world long remember. The Day captures and captivates with stunning surf footage 20 to 30-foot barrel waves.
Highlighting the film are some of the best large wave surfers in the world: Laird Hamilton, David Kalama, Darrick Doerner and Tom Carroll. Don King, Sonny Miller and Mike Prickett directed and photographed the short film, capturing the shear force and majesty of “The Day” for all to enjoy.
Don King and several of the surfers and cast of The Day will be at Waimanalo Sunset on the Beach to introduce the film on Saturday, September 11, at 7:15 pm.
