On Waikiki Beach, a Hawaiian boy paints a visiting tourist's toenails.

"The beach boys are a very integral part of the hospitality industry already in 1931. There is a history and a tradition of that. So if you needed an umbrella pitched and speared into the sand, or if you need a cool drink, or if you need to get surfboard lessons or ride a canoe -- anything that you need to do that involves frolicking, the beach boys are there to satisfy."
-- Kanalu Young, program interviewee
