Tai Alonzo was a legendary surfer with big things ahead of him, but years later, he's divorced, living in his van, his pro surfing days long behind him. When he is forced to take a job at a family-owned Hawaiian beachfront hotel, he not only becomes the surf instructor, but also the tennis pro, the yoga instructor, the handyman... he might even be key to saving ALOHA SURF HOTEL.

This film directed by Stefan Schaefer is a sweet and charming ode to Hawai‘i and the “Aloha Spirit” that is ironically being threatened by overdevelopment. In spite of this, Tai’s easygoing nature and perseverance shines through. This film features a stellar cast including HAWAII 5-0 alumni Augie Tulba (in the leading role), Taiana Tully, and Shawn Mokuahi Garnett, Branscombe Richmond, and Daniella Monet. Funny, touching, and endearing, this film is a local gem.
