New wave of Hawaiian surfers look to reclaim sport's cultural spirit
(HONOLULU) -- For 26-year-old Ha'a Keaulana, surfing is practically part of her DNA. She's been around surfing since she was a baby, even before she could walk or talk. Some of her first memories were being a surfboard with her grandfather, Hawaiian surfing legend, Buffalo Keaulana. "He was raised in a time where a lot of our culture got taken away," Keaulana told ABC News. "You weren't allowed to speak our language. And sometimes, some people couldn't even hula dance. And so that got lost. So I think naturally, he just always connected to his culture through being a waterman in the ocean." Keaulana represents a growing movement of native Hawaiians celebrating and reclaiming the cultural spirit of surfing that they say has been commercialized and coopted by pop culture over the last century. "[Surfing is] our church, because that's where we spiritually can connect to something that was always there as native Hawaiians. I feel connected to my ancestors. I feel connected to my culture," Keaulana said.
