Menace of the Sea

"Menace Of 

 

The Sea"

Hawaii's revered shark god,  Kamohoali'li, was not one to be trifled with, and neither is this board. The elemental blues and greens emphasize the sleek beauty and power of the island's protector of the seas.

 

Mana Shark

"Mana Shark" 

"Mana" - In Hawaiian symbolizes a pervasive supernatural or magical power. Sharks are thought to be the Aumakua of the Hawaiian culture. A family god, often an ancestor who has died and come back in another form.

A Hawaiian Tradition That Lives Today

A Hawaiian lei can be constructed of leaves, flowers, seashells, feathers, seeds, nuts, and even bone and teeth from various animals. It is a custom that still lives on in Hawai'i today. Below is a Plumeria Lei. These flowers are some of the most fragrant, and come in a wide variety of colors. They don't last long once picked from a tree, so the time spent with them are special.

A Custom of "Aloha"

A Lei can be worn at anytime for any occasion. They are a nice gesture for arriving guests, life celebrations, special occasions and holidays. There are few "rules" when it comes to wearing or giving a Lei.

KaiKimba Photoshoot

Some of you may remember a few years ago when I brought my tribal surfboard art onto towels and other beach lifestyle products, starting the launch of KAIKIMBA. One of the most exciting parts of that whole new venture was the photoshoot. Seeing artists work with one another and collaborate with each other is exhilarating, and leaves you with beautiful visuals. Now I take you back to Paia Bay via 2013 with the stunningly talented Maui girl- Callie Mahoney and the absolutely brilliant photographer Peter Augustin! Enjoy!

SurfWorks USA!

There are several ways to display a surfboard when hanging as art. I have tried several hanging techniques and props and as of the last few years my favorite stand has been these lightweight, simple and sleek V- Stands from SurfWorks USA . The owner Frank is a super nice and helpful. The prices are good and the stands are quality! SurfWorks has a variety of board stands but pictured below are the surfboard V-Stands. Check them out!

Aspen I'm Back!

Aloha everyone! I am back in one of my favorite places in the world and my second home; Aspen, Colorado. This time I brought some boards with me, surfboards that is. I am beyond thrilled to be showing my new Oceanic Series Surfboards at my favorite ski shop, Performance Ski, for the month of March!

All of the surfboards are shaped and glassed by world-class shaper David Gott in Maui, Hawaii. I hand-paint each surfboard making it an original piece of art where no two are alike. These one-of-a-kind surfboards are surely a cool, fun, and sleek addition to any room.

Have You Heard?

Have you heard? Kim has just recently launched a product line called KaiKimba! 'Kai' is the Hawaiian word for 'ocean' and 'Kimba' is Kim's nickname. The two together seemed only perfect for this beach lifestyle brand- 'Bring the ocean into your life'. The tribal patterns were inspired by Kim's Warrior Boards- hand painted surfboards.

KaiKimba is a lifestyle line from beach accessories, to clothing, to tech packages,. KaiKimba is just taking flight and what an exciting, and extremely busy, new venture this has been. Creating a new business while still maintaining her fine art business is not an easy job! Being a full time artist is not as laid back like most people think it is. It involves consistent creativity and inspiration, hardwork, dedication, and a strong will power. Kim manages to keep it all running with the help of a great team and her clear vision.

One of the most exciting moments with the creation of KaiKimba was the photo-shoot. What was going to be a small personal photo-shoot between Kim and her assistant, turned into a full on professional shoot. We had the honors of working with world renown photographer Peter Augustine and international model Callie Mahoney, it was like watching magic happen in front of your eyes! Here are some teasers:
