Living Lahaina is an American reality television series on MTV.[1] The series, filmed over a three-month period on location in Lahaina (on the island of Maui, Hawaii), focused on a group of twenty-something surf instructors and their father-figure-boss at the Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy.[2] Living Lahaina also followed cast members throughout travels to Indonesia, California, and Kauai.[1]

Living Lahaina premiered on Tuesday, April 17, 2007 at 10:30 p.m. on MTV and was scheduled to run for eight episodes.[3] However, only 3 episodes were shown on MTV.[3]

Following the style of MTV's Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, The Hills, and Maui Fever, Living Lahaina was shot in the format of a scripted television show (rather than in the style of a traditional reality show or documentary).[4] Cast members did not speak directly to the camera. Instead, the show made use of a Dukes of Hazzard style voice-over narrative periodically throughout each episode, to give background or sum up storylines.[4]
