Ocean Stewardship, mentoring youth, and Kokua at the core of Na Kama Kai Ocean Clinics. Duane DeSoto, his family and some of the best waterman in the world assemble monthly to teach and guide our youth in the Ocean. Biology, Oceanography, Culture, and plenty of time aboard a myriad of water craft are what the kids enjoy here. All under nurturing and watchful eye.

A shot of the Keike on water under watchful eye. Also,a pic of fun at the Planet Sun Dome.
Shonny VanLandingham takes it to Brazil-and Delivers. Shonny V won XTERRA Brazil over the weekend. Shonny stroked the second-best swim split, then raged on the bike, finishing 16-minutes faster than the next woman competotor. Beyond that, Shonny blazed the quickest run of the day. This marks Shonny V’s fourth major XTERRA victory this year, and her second international title, and still ranked #1 in the XTERRA USA series. Unreal. Shonny soon to travel to Valle de Bravo, Mexico, to race in the XTERRA MEXICO on Sep. 4th. sHIne On, Lady. A pic of Shonny a glow.
