    Kauilua Bay

  • Hi There :)

    If you are on this page it means you're one of my special people who have received an invite to join me on my adventure birthday in Oahu.


    This year, we will use Kailua as our base as it is the most convenient location to hit all the kite spots and highlights of the island from.


    We recommend you stay as close as possible to Kailua Beach Park where we launch and land our kites.

    Sammy's Aloha Watersports

    We're teaming up with one of Susi's old buddies and pro-Dominican windsurfer Sammy, who transplanted to Hawaii and now runs a one-stop fun shop for all things water related. He will take us out on SUPs, surfing, etc :)

    Hawaii Helping Hands

    Hawaii Helping Hands Concierge was founded by Alia Chochol who was born on O'ahu and raised in Kailua. Alia's vision of providing all-inclusive luxury services to visitors and locals using her extensive knowledge of the local area and network of long-term partnerships started in 2013 and continues to grow by providing exceptional customer care and quality services.


    Keeping it very simple as always :) Things can change according to the wind forecast.
