The Shaka Summer Photo Contest is on!

We love Hawaii and sharing the Aloha spirit. We love it so much we would like to invite you to do the same! Our Shaka Summer Photo Contest officially begins today, and we are very excited! The shaka is the unofficial international symbol of the Aloha spirit. Commonly used in Hawaii to say “thank you” or “what’s up”, the shaka became synonymous with surfing culture and it’s popularity spread worldwide.

What is Shaka Summer?

Shaka Summer is all about enjoying how amazing summer is, feeling good, and adding a little Aloha to your day. And now you can win $150 in prizes for feeling good this summer! All you need to do is: 1.
