2013 marks the tenth consecutive year that the Kaua’i Junior Lifeguards won the Hawaii State title.
It also marks the first time since the 1980s that they participated and won medals in the Nautica Junior Lifeguard Championships in Manhattan Beach, CA, a prequel to the United States Lifesaving Association (USLA) National Lifeguard Championships
In appreciation for all their hard work and dedication to helping save lives, 4D Ventures has produced this video highlighting the summer’s activities of the Kaua’i Junior Lifeguards.

The Kauai Lifeguard Association (KLA) installed the first Beach Safety Sign on the sands near the public showers next to the Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club. This is the first of thirty signs to be located on the beaches of Kauai.
The next two signs are scheduled for Kalapaki Beach in Nawiliwili. Each sign costs about $2,500 and is unique to its location and will provide valuable information about ocean conditions and safety for residents and visitors alike.
According to KLA president, Dr. Monty Downs, the funds for these signs come from the generous donations to the KLA by individuals and sponsors.

The KAUAI LIFEGUARD ASSOCIATION FIRST WAVE CELEBRATION was a five-month long ocean awareness and ocean safety program that raised funds thru a variety of campaigns with Kauai’s Rotary Clubs, public and private sector donations as well as a star studded concert. The net proceeds from this event enabled the KLA to purchase Yamaha Wave Runners and ATVs so that our lifeguards at all stations around Kauai are now even better equipped for rescue missions and day-to-day activities.
