2015 Keiki Surf Meet (11/27-29) Update

Duane DeSoto 80Update from former world longboard champion Duane DeSoto:

Please use this link to sign up your keiki for the event.


This will allow for you to skip the waiver signing at the beach. We will also be doing beach entries so either way. Just easier and faster for all of us if you do the sign up in link. If no access no worries. Beach enter or email me with name of keiki, age, address and gender.

Mahalo for spreading the word. FYI, the below will be happening.

Respectfully we will have a special moment for Ray Ray to have his first surf since his unfortunate encounter. In support of his bravery we will all enter the ocean with Ray Ray reconnecting him with the kai.

For the Keiki

– Bubble Guy will be sharing his bubble fun with all.

– Good Action Mobile Entertainment will be there with DJ Buddhabud and DJ Kevin Light Year

– Ata Pae cooking 300lb quarter hind hulihuli style.

– Jamba Juice for all the contest participants.

– Canoe and Subsquatch exhibition with DeSoto uncles and Brian Keaulana

– Goodie bags from Vans for all entries

– A Special Benefit for Ray Ray and his ʻohana.

– Free breakfast and Coffee from Mcdonalds for 200+

Your support is key to getting as many keiki there as possible. Mahalo

Aloha no Duane

Puma Punku Ocean Clean Up Inc. was created with a vision by Frank Ruiz, a waterman and retired Longshoreman. In his 27 year career on the waterfront, he had witnessed firsthand the decay of our beach fronts with the damaging trash washed up on our ocean shores from Tsunamis, Hurricanes and other artificial debris. In December of 2012 he gathered friends Jeffrey Williams, Sam Keanaaina and Darren Chu and their journey for a cleaner future began…
