Firefighters rescue stand-up paddlers on Maui

Maui firefighters rescued four stand-up paddlers off of S-turns Beach in Honokawai.

At approximately 11 a.m. Wednesday, a beachgoer called 911 to report the stand-up paddlers — a family visiting from Arizona — were struggling to paddle against the wind and having difficulty staying on their paddleboards, according to a news release from the Maui Fire Department.

Fire crews responded and saw the stand-up paddlers approximately 200 yards off of Mahinahina Beach.

Firefighters on Jet Skis safely brought the paddlers to shore, said the fire department.
