You know the drill.

Kauai living isn't all rainbows and waterfalls

From the perspective of your vehicle, the reality is a constant and vicious blow that is unparallel to any other environment. This has every car owner anxiously dreading the day they'll wake up to a proverbial Island Car is sitting in their driveway.


We see them everywhere; the ones with peeling paint, foggy headlights, water etching and tough stains from our unique red dirt. 


Needless to say, car owners on Kauai have been burdened with what seemed like an unavoidable situation that results in massive losses in resale value and a tarnished driving experience

Lucky for them, HiTide Protective Coating SystemsTM provide the only service that is truly adapted to environmental conditions and driver lifestyle.


Finally, a solution that is designed prevent heartache and save you thousands in depreciation and restorations!

Hard Facts.

Meet the Culprits

The recipe for a successful solution always begins with a deep understanding of what you're up againts. 

Safe to say, we've done our homework

The diligence and data collection that went behind the development of HiTide Protective Coating SystemsTM has provided us key insights on the environmental "Culprits" that are responsible for chewing away at vehicles.


Here are the non-negotiable, Hard-Facts of what island living means for your vehicle:

Hawaii's environment is 300% harder on cars than our neighbors on the mainland! 

A single year of exposure to the Kauaian sun is equivalent to an average 3 full years on the mainland US. You can thank that blistering UV index for destroying your paint faster than you can pay off your car loan.

With soil rich in iron oxide, Kauai's 

RED DIRT brings a blow from the very ground you drive on. With this shine-killer, you can forget your miracle car wash soap because red dirt stains go deep into surfaces and can leave permanent staining. 

Water may be the source of life but its also the source of stubborn mineral deposits. With a higher-than-average mineral content, our tap water on Kauai is one of the leading causes of surface damage. Water is not awlays your friend.

Throw in the sea spray, bird bombs and beach crawling, and you start to see why regular car care methods don't measure up on Kauai.

A Tough Pill To Swallow.

 A reality you can't afford to ignore

It's not all about shine and novelty.

Protection, in our books, is about preserving the driver experience as well as retaining value..


To ignore the warnings of the destructive nature of  our environment means having to face the music when the downward spiral takes hold.  The results weigh will heavy on your wallet with either thousands required on a paint job and replacement parts, or the massive losses in depreciation cutting into your trade in or resale value.

For all of you left-brained, logic-and-reason-natured drivers, you'll appreciate what inaction vs. true protection looks like in numbers.

Step into a new playground

The Game is Rigged.

Common car care practices are misleading.


Even the most invested of car owners who've dedicated time, energy and diligently searched for miracle-products are baffled to see their vehicle’s finish inevitably slip away.

With this kind of insight, you might start telling yourself "Damned if you do and dammed if you don't",  but there's one lesson to be learned in all of this:

Long term protection and jaw-dropping results don't come in a bottle;  You can't count on over simplified solutions to address complex problems

HiTide Protective Coating SystemsTM  rely solely on proprietary processes and formulas because we know that the needs of drivers on Kauai exceeds the industry standards.

The Pain ends here.

Experience relief with The Coated Life

A jaw dropping finish that stands the test of time begins with HiTide Protective Coating SystemsTM.


Our proprietary process provides peace-of-mind protection, the highest degree of shine and will turn bath time for your car into an absolute breeze.

Obviously, not-so-obvious.

Why Adapted Protection Matters.

The idea of protection is a complex task that has continuously been oversimplified. The results are always the same; short lived, underperforming products that leave car owners driving with a false sense of protection


The main reason why every solution is destined to fall short of their claims is their lack of consideration of their users lifestyle and the range environmental conditions that vehicles face.

Real-life product performance is widely dependent on three factors: 

  1. The Environment: what conditions your vehicle faces

  2. The Surfaces: your vehicle is made up of a variety of surfaces; each need specific attention

  3. The Driver Profile: annual mileage and the other habits that  make up your unique profile.

 When manufacturers and installers ignore these factors, they leave drivers with one-size-fits-all solutions that not only contradicts the important principles of protection– it defies logic!

Adapted Protection means that every HiTide Coating SystemsTM we've designed takes into account these key factors to provide a tailored solution that you can count for every mile and adventure.

That's why the only true protection, is Adapted Protection.
