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



happy summer

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..."
