MAHALO HAAHEO!

Since establishing Basic Image, Skibs has inspired and mobilized hundreds of volunteers, created more green spaces and leveraged limited donations into spectacular conservation benefit for our island. Skibs believes in living toward pono and that if others know how to malama’aina, they will have a better understanding and appreciation; they will have more respect for our way of life. Skibs’ vision and leadership continues to regenerate and transform the coastal parks and hearts of Hawai’i.


"...take care the keiki, they're our future.

take care the 'aina, because that's where we come from

Respect everyone and everything..."


The phrase "small world" means one encounters the same people, events or situations in unexpected places...we say "small world, big island"...when one encounters the same people, events, situation or connection on the Big Island...                                                    we are all connected

WORKING TOGETHER AS ONE


The 8th Annual Hakalau Bay Paka                              

Aloha Honua Festival & Hang-10

​​This year’s theme ‘Working Together as One" celebrates the value of working together to make our island a better place. Our interactive Passport to Aloha Honua (love earth) will again serve as a Festival guide and learning tool.  By interacting at your community partner booths they can learn and get their passport stamped, participants 17 and under are eligible to win great prizes.  Adult participants who complete a survey are also eligible to win prizes.  Other activities of the Festival include the Paka Pull, a tug of war and handprints.


This year’s festival includes the State of Hawaii Division of Aquatics, DLNR Hawaii Marine Recreational Fishing Survey (HMRFS), UH-PIPES, Kealoha STEM Scholars, Circle of Life, S.E.A. (staph education and awareness) & Surf to promote awareness in four main areas:  malama'aina, water stewardship, youth leadership, healthy and active lifestyles. Hawaiian Island Creations (HIC) has once again signed on to help sponsor the event.  Also joining us as a new sponsor is Manukai Handboards.   In our exhibit tent, we welcome Uncle Keoni Tulrade, Aukai Awai and Brandon Ahuna.  There will be wood carving, board displays, and Hawaiian games. Circle of Life will be providing arts and crafts.


More than 50 on-site beach entries are expected for this year's Hang-10 (14 and under) surf contest.  We also refocused the popular ‘Ohana Division to a Kokua Division.  The Kokua Division parents assist, push and go, gives the youngest of surfers the opportunity to take part in a contest with some extra support from a grown-up. Adults are allowed in the line-up during these heats to help little ones catch waves, but no tandem is allowed.
