Life in the 808

Hi’ilawe - John Cruz

I’ve replaced Christmas music with Hawaiian vibes this winter while being stuck on the mainland. I don’t even feel bad, not a bit. If you’ve never listened to Mr. Cruz’s music you should definitely give it a try! 'Island Style' is a Hawaiian treasure and also a real favorite.

Meet the hawaiian chevy lumina better known as Mucho Aloha. Purchased for $500 off a buddy who was having a hard time. Best money ever spent on this communal wonder. She’s a true maui cruiser through and through. Sure she may not make it up the hike to Haleakala no more but it is what it is. I’ve only ever met one guy on the island who’s got the same one… they just don’t die. Needless to say were friends for life now because of our lumina-connection. Simple is so much more fun than fancy. Thank you Mucho Aloha for being the raddest surf-cruiser ever! #vanlife

Andy Irons, love this guys honesty. Bummer he’s not around anymore but glad the legend is still kept alive through his brother Bruce. Kauai’s finest.
