A surfer glides on a wave over razor-sharp, shallow reef on a secret spot on Molokai, with the island of Maui on the background.

O ka papa heʻe nalu kēia, paheʻe i ka nalu haʻi o Makaiwa.

“This is the surfboard that will glide on the rolling surf of Makaiwa.”

A womanʻs boast. Her beautiful body is like the surfboard on which her mate “glides over the rolling surf.”
