The Craftsman Project - 002 Kahana Kalama

 

This is a short documentary about Kahana Kalama and his life as a Craftsman. Kahana, an ex-professional surfer, is the owner of Aloha Beach Club a surf supply store with locations in North Park, San Diego and Kailua, Oahu. This story follows Kahana between San Diego and Hawaii as he manages both his shops and designs his new clothing line that is not only inspired by his home island of Oahu, but also completely manufactured there. This is the second of many short documentaries under the title, "The Craftsman Project" which will give a glimpse into the lives of people who make a living working with their hands. A huge thanks to Aloha Beach Club and the guys who took the time out of their lives to come out and be a part of the shoot.
