We started with a family of 6. Mom, Dad, 3 girls and 1 boy. We love all things outdoors, especially if it has anything to do with water. We are highly competitive and often have fire making contests while camping.
Michael has been an avid boater, fisherman, snowboarder, skier and wood artist since he was a teen. Lainee is an artist that started camping at 2 weeks, skiing at 2.5 years old, grew up on a farm and was an outdoor guide in college. They both fell in love with stand-up paddle boards the first time they tried it.
Hao'uli Kai means "Happy Ocean" and is only part of the story. Lainee K Designs is another and is Lainee's art business. Both companies give 20% of their proceeds to our non-profit company, South 42 Degrees, to assist with the ocean clean-up efforts.
