PAIA — A group of Maui residents who just happen to be some of the world’s most distinguished windsurfers are hosting a coastal cleanup on Maui’s North Shore in collaboration with lululemon athletica, Community Work Day and the Surfrider Foundation.

The +H20 North Shore Cleanup will be held on Saturday, Oct. 23, at 10 a.m. at Baldwin Beach Park.

Part of Community Work Day’s island-wide “Get the Drift and Bag It” campaign, the cleanup will kick-off the launch of +H20, a global effort founded by professional windsurfers Levi Siver, Jake Miller, Pascal Bronnimann and Keith Teboul.

+H2O unites a global network of passionate water enthusiasts dedicated to clean water initiatives for communities around the world.

Participants will focus on cleaning several beaches, including Baldwin Beach Park, Tavares Bay, Paia Bay and Hookipa Beach Park.

The event will also feature free yoga with Nadia Toraman, live music, capoiera and free refreshments provided by Mana Foods, The Fish Market, Flatbread Pizza and Tropics Water.

In addition, cleanup participants, as well as the community, are invited to an evening fund-raiser hosted by Elevate and sponsored by Ocean Vodka at Moana Café in Paia at 8 p.m. Maui artists Pio Marasco and Gretchen Rhodes will perform live. Proceeds will go toward the +H2O Water Charities Fund.
