Happy New Year

Wishing you all a happy, safe, healthy and prosperis New Year. Get out on the water and cleanse your mind body and soul. Salt water has healing properties just as sweat and tears. Be true to yourself and all will fall into place.  Share paddle Boarding and take someone new out there to experience this life's altering activity.. It will have and impact on there  life as well as yours.. MAHALO

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou - Happy New Year. The western Christmas and New Year fell during this same time of the year that the Hawaiians traditionally honored the earth for giving them plenty to eat. This period of resting and feasting was called Makahiki (mah-kah-HEE- kee). It lasted for 4 months, and no wars or conflicts were allowed during this time. Because makahiki also means "year", the Hawaiian phrase for "Happy New Year" became "Hau'oli (happy) Makahiki (year) Hou (new)"(how-OH-lee mah-kah-hee-kee ho).
