Arts in Motion

Aloha Ohana, every Wednesday we will be featuring a local artist from Hawaii. Either a musician, painter, writer, dancer etc.. For our first installment of Arts in Motion we make our way back to the east side of Oahu. Kaneohe representative “Young Sire” is a local emcee trying to be heard. He’s been in our scopes as of lately, making noise on Maui in a few Battles & releasing a brand new music video filmed by Elias Steadman; to his track titled “Incoherent” on the island of Maui, #DefendHawaii makes a nice cameo in the video. Mahalo Sire for supporting local & keep up the hard work. The people are bound to hear you! Check out “Incoherent” below.

Support Local Athletes

Every Tuesday we will be featuring a local Athlete, whether its a sport like Football, MMA or even Skateboarding. This week we would like to feature Kaneohe, Hawaii’s own Jason Park. Now I don’t know Jason Park personally, but growing up trying to skate I always used to watch him and the other more seasoned Hawaii skaters shred the parks up. It was only a matter of time that Jason Park started getting the coverage and support he deserves. Below is a few of Jason’s most recent video releases. Featuring a video he & film maker Brett Novak created, showcasing his amazing talent as an innovative wood pusher while giving you a glimpse of the beautiful island of Oahu, a place many find magical and place we call home.

The second video we are featuring is Jason’s latest effort. Collaborating with THRASHER MAGAZINE, they would like to introduce Jason Park’s “Friendship” Part

“Jason has been an underground board control wizard for some time. He’s like a mad scientist having a blast with his abilities. Never Been Done? Hell, this part has things no one has dreamed of. You have to watch this.” – THRASHER MAGAZINE

We would like to congratulate Jason with all the success and blessings he has been receiving & we hope to see you continue to grow and thrive all while representing Hawaii. Keep GRINDING Jason & remember to always Defend Hawaii! Thats it for this weeks #SupportLocalAthletes post, stay tuned for next week and see what else talent Hawaii has to offer.
