For almost half a century, Lex Brodie's Tire, Brake & Wheel Company has nursed sickly autos back to health to help keep their cruising companions safe. The trusted business's bio-based oil change also puts a strong smile on the planet's mug, swapping out mucky mobile grease with synthetic and biodegradable 5w30 G-Oil. In addition to improving your automobile's performance, this earth-coddling petroleum can decrease your daily driving guilt, and the service includes a 38-point vehicle inspection to curb the occurrence of roadside breakdowns and subsequent read-alouds of snack nutritional labels in the voice of Darth Vader.

Detailed inspections and oil changes allow the staff to keep cars running smoothly, unlike a marathoner that jogs on a trail of hot coals. A Bosch 3D camera system calculates the adjustments needed to restore wheels to their factory alignment settings, helping to extend the life of tires.

The expert carriage cleaners at Auto Detail Aces return vehicles to road-ready luster with professional washes and detailing services. After vehicles soak in sudsy streams, experienced auto techs tenderly dab droplets with a soft wash mitt and chamois cloth. Spray-wax solutions galvanize shells against hazards including sudden rain showers or drive-by food fights. Doorjambs and trunk hinges swing open squeak-free after de-greasing treatments, and tired treads give up collected highway grime during precision de-gunkings. Inside, vacuums suck dirt and debris from carpets, and interior deodorizers freshen the air, masking the musk of spilled food, mildew, and the deer that just joined your carpool. Roadsters also don shady window tints and daubs of touchup paint to keep interiors cool and exteriors smooth and glossy. When not busy restoring vehicular vigor, Auto Detail Aces donates to the Koko Head Lions Club to support schools and the local community.

When it comes to spearfishing, Westside Dive and Tackle founder Kris Tyler considers using scuba tanks as cheating. So when he suits up to spearfish, the seasoned outdoorsman plunges 20 feet below the water’s surface, holds his breath in the stillness, and waits: “You become a part of the reef or rock, and you wait for the perfect situation—for the one fish that might give you that really good shot.” A self-described “water baby,” Kris has been swimming and fishing in Hawaii and Florida since childhood. Most of all, he loves the way spearfishing enables him to connect with the underwater universe and partake in a tradition Hawaiians have enriched for generations.

In addition to his spearfishing expeditions, Mr. Tyler totes explorers to his favorite sunken wrecks and lava caverns off the coast of Oahu on scuba-diving charters, and equips them to chart their own expeditions or challenge blowfish to staring contests during scuba-diving certification.
