After my wife and I visited,
and fell in love with, the Hawaiian Islands we designed souvenirs,
keepsakes, and gift and wedding photo albums engraved with Hawaiian themes.
They're all made with Koa, a beautiful wood that grows only in Hawaii.
chose to name them "Kúlana Nalu" - an expression in
native Hawaiian for the moment of opportunity that every surfer experiences when
they must decide to start paddling and catch a wave - also known as "The perfect
moment of decision".
Shakespeare expressed the same idea in his Julius
Caesar where he said-
“There is a tide in the
affairs of men
Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;”
Each of the Kúlana
Nalu items we make remind us of the great time we had, the wonderful people, and
the awesome beauty of the Islands. We hope they give you a little Hawaiian
whether you are buying a simple keepsake, a gift for a loved one, or a
wedding or anniversary album to keep special memories in.
Look for these item interspersed throughout our
web site. We believe they account for so much of our sales because most
everyone loves Hawaii!
