  • Why You Should Use Alkaline Water In Your Cold-Brew Coffee

    Coffee like no other...For a truly aromatic and taste-tingling sensation, cold-brew your morning coffee with Waiakea water! You may be wondering, "what's the difference between cold-brewed and normally brewed coffee and does the water I use really matter?" Attention all coffee connoisseurs, we have an answer for you. 
  • Podcasts Every Surfer Needs to Know About

    The stoke is real when it comes to surfing podcasts! From tactical skills to industry news and culture, podcasts allow you to keep up with anything and everything surf related. Action sports, including surfing, have been late to the game when it comes to podcasts, but we're all ears for our favorites:

Bearded Brothers: Siblings Team Up and Take It On

Maddison and Riley McKibbin, brothers and teammates, have been playing volleyball together since high school. In fact, they are the only brothers to have played together in both high school, college, indoor professional, and professional beach volleyball.    

California Dreaming

Waiakea is pumped to bring on board two new members to the Waiakea Ohana, Zach and Ben. For these two it’s a transportation fixation: surf boards, skate boards, fixies, motorcycles, you name it. Harking back to the 70’s, these guys live in such a way reminiscent of the California the Red Hot Chili Peppers sing about; good vibes and fast times.

Welina: Wave Sliding

“Like many in Hawaii, the practice of wave sliding has become deeply integrated into our way of life. It doesn’t define us, but rather allows us to honor our heritage as well as our commitment to the sea. A genealogical gift that has been passed down for thousands of years, I do my part so that it will be passed down for a thousand more.” -- Cliff Kapono

How Living On A Boat Will Change Your Life

Poema du Prel has been living on her 30 foot sailboat, Black Pearl, in Tahiti for the past few years. The best part? Seeing the blue sky over the ocean from her bed.  The challenges? Having to fix leaks and broken engines alone.

So Long Summer Sale

It's been a great summer for the Waiakea team, filled with family & friends, creativity, long nights, early mornings, and steady growth. We're sad to see it go, but grateful for the opportunities we were offered and connections that were made over the past 3 months.

Willie Kessel: Move, Inspire, Evoke

Growing up on a seaside avocado ranch in southern California, Willie has always been influenced by the ocean and its surroundings. Willie believes photography is highly interactive, in that he is sharing his personal lens with the world so that it may move, inspire, or evoke.

Cliff 'Bruddah' Kapono is an anomaly, in the greatest sense of the word.

Skater and Surfer Shane Borland Joins Waiakea Ohana

Shane Borland, affectionately called “Shano” by friends and family, can be found cruising the California coast looking for swells, chasing big waves on the North Shore and around the world, or tearing up the skate park at national contests. At 15, he’s a two sport-anomaly. In an interview with The Inertia, Shane explains "Skating adds to my surfing and surfing adds to my skating, it gives me [...]
