HAWAII’S BUZZIN’ about Journey‘s concerts here next month, with extra buzz created by its lead singer Arnel Pine-da from the Philippines.

The cast of The Hills spotted at Sunset Beach - Lauren Conrad, Lo Bosworth, Audrina Patridge, Brody Jenner and the rest of the crew minus Heidi and Spencer filming scenes for an upcoming episode. The guys also tried out some surfing while the ladies sunned, sipped drinks, chatted, sipped drinks, giggled and met up with the guys for more drinks!

Filming at the end of March is Soul Surfer, a bio about Kauai surfer Bethany Hamilton, who had her left arm bitten off by a tiger shark some five years ago.

According to executive producer Dutch Hoff-stetter, filming will take place on the North Shore and on Kauai. Based on Hamilton’s book, Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family and Fighting to Get Back on the Board, shooting will take around 26 days. Bethany will do her own surfing sequences, but will not act in the film.
