Jun was born and raised in Hawaii and has been in and out of the water since "small kid time" as he puts it. Jun is the founder of HulaKai, an original Hawaiian waterman company. HulaKai was originally formed in 1997 when he began shaping longboard surf boards in Puako. Jun shaped his first stand up paddle board in 2001, long before stand up paddle boarding became so popular!
What keeps Jun motivated? Staying healthy in order to teach keiki the lessons and knowledge that was taught to him, and what has made Jun the waterman he is today.
To stay sane and fit, Jun surfs, paddles outrigger canoes competitively, dives, swims... if it has something to do with being in the ocean you'll probably see Jun out there charging!
