Our friend Ekolu Kalama
has been charging some mind bending waves lately all over the planet on the new Starboard SUP's
...from the Hawaiian Islands...Sunset Beach on Oahu...to Maui...to secret spots on Molokai...Puerto Escondido...El Salvador...Indo...Teahupoo...Tahiti...Italy...etc...
I don't know of anyone that has been spreading the stoke all over the planet as much as Ekolu...

Through the Ohana Project
, Ekolu has a film coming out soon called "A Standup World"...
Q: What is the Ohana Project?
Ekolu: "Ohana first of all means, "family" in the Hawaiian language. The Ohana Project is a non-profit liaison that inspires and assists individuals, groups, and corporations by giving help in any possible way we can help. It accomplishes this by connecting social innovators with humanitarian causes and packages the results for immediate exposure in mainstream media. Eventually we would like to see everyone become a part of our Ohana Project."
His website says it best:
"Ekolu is a true ambassador of "Aloha" and is the premier torch carrier for the sport of stand-up paddling. He has crossed the globe (literally) promoting this rapidly growing sport. In September 2008, Ekolu became the first to stand-up paddle from Europe to Africa across the Straight of Gibraltar.
Look at where he's been! Where will he go next?"
