‘This is an unbelievable feeling. And it feels so much better when you see the smiles from the fans and supporters who are there the whole way, cheering on with you. Honolua Bay turned on the magic for us. It’s one of the best feelings in the world, taking off on beautiful long faces in front of the cliffs. Just magic’. – Steph Gilmore

‘ULUALOHA’ the story on Jimmy Napeahi Aka. Ulu Boi by Aurelius Cinema.

A masterfully captured piece of cinematography on Ulu Boi’s story. A must see!

Now, just over three years later, Napeahi is back on his feet and charging harder than ever before. And to him, he owes a lot of it to the shark that nearly took his life. “The way I see it,” he says, “I owe that shark my deepest gratitude because it gave me a second chance at life. And to this day, I am continually being blessed. Now that the past is behind me, I want to be known as a good son, a good brother, a good friend, and over all, a good surfer.”
