Many women of the lands say the secret to happiness is for you to be "Olali with your alelo"!

"Olali with your alelo"-"familiar with my language"?

So true... "Olali with your alelo" = Smooth with your tongue.

In the early 1980's, Kamehameha school teacher, Dean Hayward, designed and built a surfski, which he called the Holua. Although Holua means grass riding sled, one-man's do perform as a sled gliding down steep bumps. Maybe, if we were to trace the lineage of some of our modern one man's, there possibly might be some Holua DNA in them?
