‘OHANA TAKES ON MANY FORMS

WE ALL GET STRONGER


The many meanings of family In Hawai‘i, it’s well known that ‘ohana means family, but what’s truly profound is how “family” can easily stretch beyond blood relatives. Whether it’s siblings discovering their parallel passions or a tight-knit guild of Hawai‘i lifeguards, some of the strongest ‘ohana can be found outside of the traditional home. And today, just as it’s been in Hawai‘i for centuries, these rich variations of family maintain a balance and harmony that is magnified by the Islands.


‘OHANA IS COMMUNITY pg. 14 (below) Constantly keeping watch and protecting Hawai‘i’s local and visiting beachgoers, the brave men and women of the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association are a unique and tight-knit ‘ohana. With more than 400 guards across the Islands, the HLA strives to leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.

‘OHANA IS CONNECTION pg. 04 (above) Maui’s world champion freediver and spearfisher Kimi Werner always knew she had a longlost sibling, but she never imagined that the ocean would bring her brother, Dr. Randy Kosaki, back into her life in such a profound way. This true story is no fish tale.

‘OHANA IS A CHOICE pg. 24 (above) The collective ‘ohana of artists and creatives in Hawai‘i is accustomed to leaving home for big cities abroad to get their starts. Thankfully, artists like Jordan Higa and Noa Emberson brought their creativity back to the Islands to be closer to family and found each other in the process.

‘OHANA IS CONNECTION

FORCES OF NATURE Kimi’s brother Randy, who was adopted years before she was born, was always just a story to her, until the two finally met decades later to discover their shared love of fish and all things ocean.

LONG-LOST SIBLINGS KIMI WERNER AND DR. RANDY KOSAKI DISCOVER THEY SHARE PARALLEL LIVES SPENT IN THE OCEAN.

Usually, it’s not too difficult to see all those little idiosyncratic similarities among siblings. Teachers, for instance, often notice who might be related from grade to grade over the years— maybe it's the way a child laughs, similar handwriting, or the way a student scratches their head while thinking of an answer. Besides pure physical resemblances, parents pass along other personality traits—some slightly nuanced, others not—that seem to prove they’re biological members of the same ‘ohana.

Almost peripherally, Randy’s adoptive parents enrolled him in scuba diving lessons, which inspired his own love and awe for marine science.

For champion freediver and spearfisher Kimi Werner and Dr. Randy Kosaki, chief scientist for Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, this cold hard proof was found in their individual love and respect for the ocean. “We both found our way to the ocean and made a lifelong passion out of it,” Randy says. “We love to dive and we want to dive, but mostly, it’s we have to dive. It’s part of having salt in your veins and it’s such a part of your existence.”

While Randy grew up with the best parents he could ever ask for, about 15 years ago he decided to hire a private investigator to find his birth mother and siblings. The search was quickly successful. After Kimi’s mother was contacted by the private investigator, she shared the news with Kimi, who did what everyone would do in her position—she Googled him. She learned that Randy was a famous ocean scientist who’d actually discovered unknown species of fish, and she couldn’t have been more over the moon.

Believe it or not, this bond took many years to discover. Randy was put up for adoption a decade before Kimi was even born. While she knew she had a long-lost brother for most of her life, she’d never meet him until well into her 20s. Kimi was raised on Maui in a very humble, live-off-the-land-and-sea upbringing, while Randy was raised by intellectual professors on O‘ahu. Both, in their own separate ways, were drawn to the ocean. Kimi, who always somehow felt more natural underwater among the fish, became an underwater hunter and environmental conservationist.

“When I first met Kimi, I felt like I met a female version of myself, to the extent that we really are two sides of the same coin.” –Dr. Randy Kosaki

“The best fishermen are good conservationists,” Randy explains. “They don’t overfish their fishing grounds, just as the best scientists are for marine conservation, but not in an effort to shut down fishing. They view these large marine protected areas as fishing enhancement tools.”

“I remember this one question he was asked in an interview I read,” Kimi recalls. “He was asked about his favorite part of his latest expedition and discovering this new coral. His answer was, ‘My favorite part was when I got to take off that tech gear and go freediving—just freediving for fun.’ I instantly knew he was my brother. It was like I was reading the language of my own heart, just with a different accent.”

“I’M SO LUCKY TO HAVE HIM IN MY LIFE, AND NOT JUST FOR THE MISSING PUZZLE PIECE OF FAMILY.” –KIMI WERNER

Not long after making contact with their mother, Randy, Kimi, and her sister met in person for the first time, a reunion decades in the making. “When I first met Kimi, I felt like I met a female version of myself, to the extent that we really are two sides of the same coin,” Randy says. “I’m a conservation biologist who loves to fish. She’s a world-class fisherwoman with a world-class conservation ethic. And good conservation is what’s good for fishermen, so I almost felt like I met a different version of myself.” After talking story and catching up that whole entire first night, the siblings quickly formed a strong bond, both in and out of the water, of course. “I’m so lucky to have him in my life,” Kimi says. “And not just for the missing puzzle piece of family, but also it’s just so rad to have this brother that is this chief scientist who has become my authority on anything I need to know on ocean conservation. When I want to know how old a certain fish can get, or if this is sustainable, or what its lifespan is, it’s just a phone call away. I love the person he is.” “I think Kimi and I are an interesting study in nature versus nurture,” Randy adds. “We were both nurtured, but we also have something innate that drove us to the ocean. I think it is a very strong role and it’s neither either-or. We all are the product of our genetics and our life experiences put together.” In a cosmic coincidence to their new, reunited life experience, Kimi was chosen to go on a research voyage to the remote Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, on the same boat as her brother Randy.

NEW COLORS FOR THE ‘OHANA Our Men‘s classics get a splash of new colors inspired by the natural shades of Hawai‘i. Observing each other in their own disciplines, but together on the sea, Kimi recalls, “It just felt like we were two fish from the same family.” Now that Kimi’s finally found her long-lost brother she cherishes the bond. “I think that a lot of times in life, it's a sad fact with humans that we can get lazy and take for granted the people who are closest to us because we know that they will always be there. We spend so much time trying to impress others and make friends that we don’t put much care into the ones who already love us and who are going to be our family for the rest of our lives. In a way, it’s a neat thing that we’ve been separated, because it makes me appreciate the time we have together so much more.” Sure, the two siblings might not necessarily finish each other’s sentences, but their corresponding aquatic passions are uncanny. Indeed, while they say blood is thicker than water, perhaps seawater truly carries us home. “Even though we grew up separately, that first night where we got together, I almost felt like I had known her my whole life,” Randy recalls.

A BOND CREATED BY THE OCEAN

‘OHANA IS COMMUNITY

WITH OVER 400 LIFEGUARDS ACROSS THE STATE, THE HAWAIIAN LIFEGUARD ASSOCIATION IS PERPETUATING THE KNOWLEDGE TO PROTECT HAWAI‘I’S WAVE-RICH COASTLINES.

In white-collar professional circles, success is measured by the size of a paycheck or the view from an office window. Conversely, in Hawai‘i, there’s a tight-knit community of public servants that have traded neckties and computers for swim fins and a rescue board to achieve a different kind of success. Lifeguarding in the Islands is a highly respected profession born that he would have to learn a great deal more from a hard-earned outdoor lifestyle of ocean about the rugged shoreline to save lives. “Once knowledge, elite physical fitness, and the innate I started working with the senior lifeguards I felt bravery to put oneself in harm’s way to save like I knew barely anything,” Bradley says. lives in dangerous situations. And it all begins “They taught me the lifestyle of guarding and with the sharing of knowledge from one taught me that being a waterman encompasses generation to the next. so many things, even terrestrial stuff, too.” “Everyone was fit and active in the ocean, and they just left such a lasting impression on me during my time in the Junior Lifeguard Program that I became a full-time lifeguard,” says guard Bryan Phillips, a 15-year veteran with 14 of those years on O‘ahu’s infamous North Shore. Bryan is part of the elite rescue watercraft unit and is assigned to Pipeline and Waimea Bay, the two most dangerous and deadly waves in the entire state. “Being a lifeguard is really about respect— respect for your environment, respect for your partners, and respect for the job. It’s a career for us. It’s a lifestyle.” Hawai‘i Island lifeguard and rescue watercraft operator Bradley Young has almost a decade of experience guarding on the east side of the island and owes his knowledge of a vast swath of coastline to the training from his mentors. Even growing up in the ocean, after joining the guards at 19, he quickly realized 14

To maintain an elite level of physical fitness, lifeguards like Bryan and Bradley maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes a nutritious diet, plenty of sleep, and daily training in and out of the water. Depending on the conditions, the guards run or swim, paddle the rescue board, tackle cardio exercises or practice weight training. As members of the rescue watercraft crew on their respective islands, Bryan and Bradley also train water rescue situations with their watercraft. Being in shape is only part of what each guard must bring to the table when other people’s lives hang in the balance. Each guard must balance fitness with communication and teamwork to maintain the highest level of safety for beach goers and their co-workers. “We are a family. We look after each other,” Bryan says. “And when the action’s happening and the waves are huge, we back each other up.”

Lifeguarding really starts before a situation occurs. Hawai‘i’s lifeguards are proactive life savers, speaking with thousands of visitors everyday on myriad beaches across the state to share ocean conditions and safety tips for specific locales. They also know that protecting Hawai‘i’s amazing shorelines comes from local knowledge that is passed down through the generations. “In our ‘ohana, lifeguarding doesn’t just stop in the tower,” Bryan says. Bryan and Bradley are both instructors for the Junior Lifeguard Program, a free community program for kids between the ages of 12 and 17 years old. Last year, roughly 1,500 kids completed the program, learning rescue techniques with the rescue tube, fins, and rescue surfboard, CPR, and even an introduction to the rescue watercraft. The training builds their confidence in and around the ocean, and it’s also a recruiting tool for the lifeguard program. “The Junior Lifeguard Program gives these kids a safe place to go to learn about the ocean, about lifeguarding, and respect of the ocean,” Bryan says. “I was a junior guard and now I run the program on O‘ahu. It’s so rewarding to see these kids so psyched, because I was one of those kids.”

READYING THE NEXT GEN WITH KA‘IULANI BOWERS

What is it like to be part of the Hawai‘i lifeguard ‘ohana? It’s honestly the most incredible family I’ve ever had because these are people I trust with my life. When I go out, I know that if I need backup, they’re going to come. I know they’re watching me. Share with us how it feels to be one of only a few women in this line of work? There are only nine of us out of 400 guards. I really had to earn everyone’s respect—doing double training breaks, going out when it’s huge, taking the rescue board out and getting worked, but just keep trying, keep doing it. It’s a gnarly job. You are constantly putting yourself into harms way. And not everyone’s cut out for it. It takes a really amazing human to want to do this job. It doesn’t matter to me if it’s a boy, girl, man, or woman—just to be able to learn that basic knowledge of awareness, you can apply it anywhere. So now you’re passing that spirit and knowledge along to the next generation of junior guards? Right. I’ve been teaching the junior lifeguard program for nine years at the Ala Moana site. It’s an honor to be able to help people and be in this lifestyle. I want to pass that on. I tell the kids that whatever you do, just be passionate and give it everything you have. If you can find something that you love and you dedicate everything that you’ve got, then you’ll be stoked the rest of your life, you’ll prosper, and you’ll be able to pass the stoke on to everyone else.

‘OHANA IS A CHOICE

A Life Designed Together When you reside on an island where communities tend to be smaller and more tight-knit, its easy to form strong bonds and meaningful relationships with friends and colleagues that share talents, passions, and values. Honolulu artists Noa Emberson and Jordan Higa are individually renowned for their skillsets amongst their peers. As a couple, they’re taking collaboration to the next level, creating art and sharing moments from their 1940s-era mid-century modern home overlooking Diamond Head and the South Shore. Jordan attended university on the mainland and launched her career in New York City before returning home to O‘ahu. She specializes in Hawai‘i-inspired illustrations and prefers ink or pencil on paper to synthesize her ideas. An analog artist at heart with a passion for watercolors, Jordan prefers working in naturally lit spaces where she can read and manipulate the true colors emitted from her pen or brush. When she’s not at the drawing table, she gleans inspiration from a run on the beach with her dog or a brisk walk up and down the neighborhood hills. “Most of my downtime is spent at the beach, where I’ll look around until I’m inspired to draw something,” she says. “Illustrations can be as simple as sailboats bobbing along the horizon to creating patterns inspired by the texture on a cool shell I found.” Noa earned his graphic design chops on the mainland as art director at Surfing magazine before returning home to Hawai‘i to launch his own creative design firm. The artistic ying to Jodi’s yang, Noa is a graphic designer and works with clients to produce print-based layout and editorial design. A lifelong surfer, the ocean is often Noa’s muse, influencing his design aesthetic in flow and form. With a cup of coffee and a quick morning surf to get his day started, once he sits down at the computer next to Jordan, it’s time to get creative. “I’m bouncing ideas off of her all the time to get a different perspective and feedback to see if the idea I’m pursuing is worth exploring further,” Noa says. “It's a great resource and the final product ends up being much better when I do collaborate. Lucky for us we have a bunch of creatives that we’re friends with and we can meet up or call on anytime. It’s invaluable.” 25
