Yesterday I got this note in my email inbox:
“As I read your book, I have this sense that my team has a lot in common with your Alaka‘i Nalu. Can you share a picture of them?”
Sure, I don’t think they’d mind. Here’s a recent one of just six of them, taken in June of this past year, well past the time I was their manager: As you can see, they’re doing just great! I continue to be very proud of them. Alaka‘i Nalu translates to leaders of the waves, and they live up to their name daily.
In this second shot they are paddling the canoe named Ka la hiki ola, (the dawning of a new day) and you can see part of their ocean, and their beach. Just another day in paradise.
