In November 2016, pro surfer Ezekiel “Zeke” Lau KSK’12 hosted the inaugural Makahiki games on the lawn of the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of O‘ahu. Zeke saw the importance of sharing his Hawaiian culture with other professional surfers. The event was co-organized by Hawaii Business magazine’s Daniel Ito KSK’99. Zeke is currently preparing for 2017 World Championship Tour—his first year on the WCT. He qualified during the 2016 Pipe Masters in December 2016. The 2017 WCT kicks off in March 2017 at the Quiksilver Pro in Queensland, Australia.
