World Surf Leauge

The World Surf League sanctions over 180 events worldwide each year. When their hugely popular competitions come to Hawaii, giant crowds pack the beaches. Well-trained and professional security is essential  to the success of these events. 

A crowded beach for KT Protection Services

The challenge

The World Surf League is responsible for the safety and security of thousands of eventgoers and hundreds of competitors, and staff. They must coordinate land-based security with the Hawaiian Water Patrol and ensure that competitors are safe both at and away from the competition.  All of this must be achieved while also protecting Hawaiian land, water, and culture.

The service

KT Protection Services owner Dave Fuga says, “Your average security guard is not built for this.” KT is able to provide highly trained, local, uniformed guards along with seamless integration with the Hawaiin Water Patrol.  KT also provides protection services for athletes, both on-site and away from the competition. 

Positive Outcomes

By working with KT Protection Services, the World Surf League is able to focus on what happens in the water while knowing that the beaches are being looked after. 

KT is able to keep spectators safe while they enjoy themselves. Staffing with local protection specialists ensures the land, water and culture will be respected, too.
