aloha! Shaka sign is an island greeting common
in surf culture. I grew up on the east coast of Australia, across the road from the beach
so I was immersed in surf culture for many years, I eventually learned to surf a little, but
mainly just loved the sun and sea as they give me such a feeling of wellbeing and wholeness.
I love all things ‘island’, particularly love learning about the history of the islands of Tahiti
and Hawaii, etc. As a child I spent two important holidays on Keswick and St Bees Islands
in the Whitsundays, Keswick Island was an uninhabited island, with just us and a hut. It
was an amazing experience for 2 weeks, alone completely with nature. I have always had
a dream to live on an island (remotely) or in a lighthouse where it’s really windy and rugged.
I wonder if I will ever realise that dream…anyways…just a little about me and what’s behind
why I wish everyone aloha all the time….my heart is an ‘island’ heart….my song and my muse
is the sea…x

The “shaka” sign is a common greeting gesture. It is often associated with Hawaii. Hawaiian locals use the shaka for various meanings, like “all right”, “cool”, “smooth”, etc. Residents of states other than Hawaii who use the shaka may describe it as meaning “hang loose” and in California, the symbol itself is more commonly called the “hang loose” sign rather than the “Shaka” sign. It is also used to convey what locals in Hawai’i call the “Aloha Spirit,” a gesture of friendship and understanding between the various ethnic cultures that reside within Hawai’i. It can also be used to signal a “hello”, “goodbye”, " ’till next time", “take care”, “Alright!” In sign language, the shaka is one of the two signs used to refer to surfing.
