Kuleana Travel tips in Hawaii – Malama da Aina

Kuleana Travel tips in Hawaii – Malama da Aina

In Hawaiian Kuleana means (responsibility) and we believe taking care of our Aina (land), is our responsibility. We have beautiful oceans and landscape filled with tropical fruits, birds, and fish. Not only is it nice to keep them alive but we want them to thrive. Some of the ways we can keep Hawaii thriving is by doing some very basic things together.

NO LITTERING – Pick up after yourself. Throw away trash and plastic waste. Did you just eat a plate lunch or musubi at the beach? Throw away the plastic, don’t let the wind carry it away and pollute the ocean. I’ve seen sea turtles and fish wrapped suffering while wrapped in plastic or plastic and metal along the shore lines. It’s sad and disgusting to look at. As a tourist we encourage you to think like a local and take care of the land.

HAVE GRATITUDE AND THANKFULNESS – Upon stepping foot on this land take a deep breath and give thanks for life and all the life that lives here. Watch the beautiful sunsets, swim in the water, and embrace the Aloha spirit. Walk on the sand and feel the water crash on your feet then bend down and scoop the water in your hand and splash it on your face. Get grounded by walking barefoot in the jungle or park. Say something nice to someone. A little act of kindness can go a long way!

Jet Lev Hawaii

Looking for fun things to do on Oahu? Jet Lev in Hawaii with Fresh Air Oahu and receive a discount on your Jet Lev Rental when you call us today! The best way to describe the Jet Lev in Hawaii can be found in the words of Mark Boling when he said, “I literally felt like Superman!” From the moment you strap on the water jet pack you will feel an X-treme rush flowing through your body as you assend up to 33 feet in the air, depending on your ability to control the water power jet pack. But don’t only take our word for it, see what the engineers at Jet Lev had to say for themselves in this three key question interview about the jet lev.

Q: What are three unique sensations when you fly the Jetlev?

A: The most intriguing sensation is the feeling of weightlessness. As soon as sufficient lift is applied, you and the jetpack become weightless and levitate in the air, and even small amounts of force will move or turn you. You will feel some pressure from the saddle and the trapeze, but usually no more than from riding a bicycle. The second unique sensation is suspended height. Even if you are an airplane or helicopter pilot, few have ever experienced the sensation of being suspended up to three-storey high with no visible support from above or beneath your feet. 30 feet may not sound very high but it can seem a lot higher in a jetpack, and the unique perspective from that height is incredible. The third unique sensation is the absolutely amazing three dimensional freedom of movement. Once you learn how to fly, you can travel in any direction, at any height, and at any speed that the system will carry you. With a thrust-to-weight ratio of up to 2.5:1 at the water, there is nothing else that can come close to its agility.

Q: What happens if I fall?

A: Even if you fall from the maximum height of 30 feet or 8.5 m, you will be entering the water at less than 30 mph, and all body parts will be slowing down together gradually by drag from the water. You will be protected by the saddle, back rest, body harness, PFD, and other protective equipment. Hundreds of times each year, thousands of platform divers jump from 10 m, or 33 feet, with no protective equipment, and few serious injuries occur. Remember that it is how quickly your body slows down in a fall, not how fast you are going, which determines the risk and severity of injuries. It is important to fly only over deep water and stay well away from the boat unit while in flight. While it will still be a much softer landing than falling on land, you could sustain injuries if you fall on the boat unit.

Q: How long does it take to learn to fly?

A: Our training system has made it very easy to learn to fly. How quickly you learn depends a lot on your willingness to accept new things, your aptitude with sports that require some weight shifting, and how well you learn from the training video. A qualified instructor can teach a new pilot to fly unassisted in as little as 6 minutes, but most take a little longer. Even though some will learn to fly better and higher than others, everyone will have a fantastic levitating experience on the first flight. You don’t even have to leave the water to enjoy the experience.
