Kapono Mahoe

What you are most passionate about or what do you love to do?

Bodyboarding. I've been doing it since I was in elementary school and just amazes me how much I've accomplished and seen over the years being connected to the ocean. It's my sanctuary.

What do you do for work or volunteer?

I work as a certified C7 SSPC Sandblaster and painter. We do it all plus some ironwork and scaffolding. We do only state and federal commercial jobs mostly in Pearl Harbor and Red Hill Fuel Facility.

What do you do or want to do to make a difference in the world today?

I'd like to see the people being more humble to another. Malama and aloha is always given and respected. We need to connect more with our ancestors, culture and past to educate ourselves how we lived.
