Ocean Safety lifeguards in Maui responded to a possible standup paddle boarder in distress Saturday morning in waters off the Hololani Resort.
Firefighters responded to 4401 Lower Honoapiilani Road at 9:49 a.m. and spotted a standup paddler about a mile offshore paddling against the wind.
There was a normal tradewind pattern of 15 to 20 mph at the time, the Maui Fire Department said.
The paddler, a 31-year-old Las Vegas woman, said she was not in distress but was just trying to get back to her condo near Pohaku Park.
The woman was not making any headway against the wind so lifeguards brought her back to shore at 10:23 a.m., according to the fire department.
