HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state is wading into a touchy turf war that's pitting stand up paddlers against surfers and bodyboarders.
A group called Safe-Surf Hawaii is proposing a one year pilot program.
The program would ban stand up paddle boarders from all surf breaks between Ala Wai boat harbor to Kewalo Basin.
This would be in effect on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m.
Safe-Surf Hawaii says many stand up paddle boarders are unfairly taking too many waves and often endanger surfers and bodyboarders with their big boards.
