Our friends at OluKai love bringing different people together to share aloha.
They recently brought some kind folks from different islands together to explore Kaua‘i.
Bobbie Hanohano, a Hawaiian native with roots traceable to the ancient Tahitian celestial navigators, met Hinatea Boosie, a Tahitian visiting Hawaii for the very first time. They hiked rocky trails, swam in tucked-away coves, and shared their experience of a life surrounded by water. Though some 2,700 miles of blue ocean separate their island homes, they instantly felt connected—like family from faraway lands.
Mark Healey, a world-renowned waterman and big wave surfer, makes his home on O‘ahu met up with Miguel Rodriguez, who hails from Peru, an island in the same ocean as Mark, but in the much colder Pacific Northwest. As they explored the more secluded spots of Kaua‘i, they found that a life surrounded by water has deeply shaped them both.
