Drama, excitement, wisdom and abandon permeate surf history. Stories filled with surfing queens and menehune, sacred rituals and guardian sharks, holua races and life-or-death surf competitions float across the waves on the Kona coast. Take a journey with the authors; a Kona-grown Hawai'ian longboarder, and an Oregon-trained, Kona-seasoned bodyboarder, to some famous, some secret, all significant surf spots. Campbell and Donaldson uncovered unique surf lore embedded in each place, and Nalu o Kona is where they share their discoveries. Enjoy the ride…


About the Author

naluokona Kona, Hawaii

Keli Campbell and Krista Donaldson met while slinging food at an upscale restaurant that overlooked one of Kona's most beautiful surf breaks. Between bread baskets and water refills, they found that an excitement for surf, nerdy research and history connected them. After countless sessions in the waves, at the coffee shop and in the tiny trailer of the State Historic Preservation division, they've finally made public....the book. Enjoy!

This book reveals the authors' deep reverence and commitment to what makes surfing possible: the culture and natural environment in which the sport was spawned.
Mahalo for the beauty and wisdom -- and fun! -- that Keli and Krista have captured in their book. May readers be inspired to protect what makes surfing more than "just" another sport.
Great cover, too!
