The most devastating fires was the one in Lāhainā that destroyed thousands of homes, businesses, and cultural sites. To date, 99 individuals perished. The wildfire in Kula also destroyed homes and displaced residents. As the Surfrider Foundation Maui Chapter, we continue to support its community through a variety of direct relief efforts. We are also focusing on how we best respond to current and emerging environmental concerns, support the West Maui surfing and ocean recreation community, and ensure that rebuilding efforts are community driven and reflect sustainable design principles.
