cj_vanillagorillasurf Mahalo Nui For the Aloha!!! #Repost @smithsonianmagazine ・・・
This is Jason Wright @jasonwright222 posting for Smithsonian Magazine. Today I would like to share with you CJ Kanuha (@cj_vanillagorillasurf), waterman, professional surfer, surfboard shaper. CJ's family roots run deep on the Big Island, he was taught the ways of the Hawaiian culture from his father as a child. He is the perfect example of the next generation of native Hawaiians determined to keep the spirit of their history alive and well. Kanuha is one of the few people in modern times making the traditional 'Alaia' surfboards the Hawaiian Kings learned to surf on.

The point of land on which he is standing is known as Kamoa Point. This area was once the most significant political and religious site in Kona. King Kamehameha I is said to have learned the skills of warfare and the pleasure of surfing at this site. Later as victorious chief, he placed the feathered image of his war god, Kukailimoku, within one of the many sacred heiau's and shrines that make up this area. It is also the final resting place of CJ's father.
