Teamwork

Paging Sean Combs!

2. Paging Sean Combs!

Director Duane Clarke comments: "This was the big opening scene to introduce Sean Combs' character in "Ho 'opa i". It was actually raining on and off that day, but if you watch the episode, you'll see a beautiful blue sky with puffy white clouds in the wide shots. Movie magic at its finest! The whole grey sky was digitally replaced in post production."
Who Is The Pro?

3. Who Is The Pro?

Director Duane Clarke Comments: "First scene, first day directing my first episode of HAWAII 5-0 (Kai e'e). The irony here is that Grace Park (Kono) is teaching Scott Caan (Danny) how to surf in this scene. But in real life, Grace does not know how to surf at all while Scott is an *excellent* surfer! Scott was a real trooper allowing himself to look like such a surf-goof."
Playing Around

4. Playing Around

Director Duane Clarke comments: "This is what happens when you let Grace play around in the prop truck. No guns were necessary for the surf lesson scene in Kai e'e. But I guess "necessary" is a relative term..."

Executive Producer Peter Lenkov Comments: "Our cast preparing to shoot their THANK YOU to the voters who helped us win the People's Choice Award for BEST NEW DRAMA
Let's Go Surfing

6. Let's Go Surfing

Director Duane Clark Comments: "Scott Caan (Danny) gets ready for his surf lesson in the opening of "Kai e'e". The idea was that when we first see Danny, we think he's paddling out in the water, but when we cut wide we see he's learning to surf on the sand. Given the tide and the way the sand angled down to the water, it was tricky to find a camera position that made it look like Scott was paddling out in the water. Did we fool you?"
Pipeline Season

7. Pipeline Season

Executive Producer Peter Lenkov Comments: "Alex, Scott and the Director Matt Earl Beesley discuss the scene immediately following the murder of the Coral Prince CEO. This scene was shot at the world famous Pipeline. The row of houses behind Alex and Scott are kind of like a Fraternity Row for the Pro Surfing world -- Volcom, Rip Curl, Oakley, Target and Quiksilver all have houses here which are home to their Pro Teams over the winter Pipeline season. The house that we shot "Ko'olauloa" in is the real Rip Curl house."
Break on a Beach

8. Break on a Beach

Executive Producer Peter Lenkov Comments: Alex, Scott, Daniel and Grace prepare to shoot a scene on the sand at the world famous Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu, with the Director Matt Earl Beesley and one of the Writers, Kyle Harimoto. You can see in Grace's face, that she is getting ready to tackle a very emotional scene and if you remember the timeline, you'll notice that Scott is sitting due to his injured knee. We were very fortunate to get the support of the core surf community for "Ko'olauloa", as evidenced by the Billabong tent our cast stands under.

Surf's Up For Grace

11. Surf's Up For Grace

Executive Producer Peter Lenkov comments: "For "Ko'olauloa" Grace had to get in the water at Pipeline, which can be a scary endeavor for anybody but she was a champ on this day where the rip current was very strong. She is in the water here with famed Surfing Cameraman Mike Prickett, who has been the Cinematographer of many high profile Surf Films featuring the likes of Kelly Slater and the late great Andy Irons."
