Riding waves and shaping clay

I am a Surfer and artist born and raised on the North shore of Oahu. In Hawaiian, My name means “power of the Sea.” Kai means ocean and mana means power or life force; I believe this is one of the reasons I have such a strong bond with the ocean. My life revolves around nature whether that's riding waves or shaping clay.

Creativity and the thirst for self expression have always been at the core of who I am. Whether that is Surfing, Ceramics, shaping fins, or playing piano, all have given me the ability to expand my mind and express who I am in the rawest forms.
