Hawaiian hangs 10, bro
HI-FIVES were handed out all-round at Hawaiian Airlines, when the carrier’s surf team lived up to its destination’s lofty reputation, winning the Wyndham Destinations Corporate Surf Challenge.
Partnering with Flight Centre, the joint-band team took out first place at Duranbah Beach in the Tweed Shire - another milestone for Hawaiian Airlines to celebrate as it rings in its 90th year (TD 13 Nov).
Corporate teams took to New South Wales’ northernmost beach to battle it out for the title, all the while raising a record of over $20,000 for FSHD Global Research Foundation, which raises money for facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.
