Started on March 9th,2011 it’s beginnings were marked immediately by a historic moment and event. Referred to on ancient calendars as “The 9th Wave” this moment was heralded in with the 9.0 Earthquake in Japan on March 11th 2011 , followed by a Tsunami that instantly changed the world as we know it. The importance of these events being tied to the birth of the company was not an irony ever lost on it’s founders.

As a comapany our mission is to adhere to the “Keep it Local“ and “Made in Hawaii” feeling while including people, cultures, and artists from around the world.
