Makua Rothman

MAKUA ROTHMAN GREW UP ON THE NORTH SHORE OF OAHU, HAWAII AND STARTED SURFING AT THE AGE OF TWO. AT JUST THE AGE OF 18, HE CAUGHT THE WORLD'S BIGGEST WAVE (66') AND TOOK THE SURFING WORLD BY STORM BY WINNING THE BILLABONG XXL GLOBAL BIG WAVE AWARD. THIS SURFING CHAMPION IS NOW PURSUING ANOTHER PASSION IN MUSIC AS AN ACCOMPLISHED UKULELE PLAYER AND SINGER. HE HAS BEEN TAUGHT BY THE LIKES OF LEGENDARY MUSICIAN IZ KAMAKAWIWO'OLE , LEDWARD KAAPANA AND JOHN CRUZ. MAKUA IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT BEING THE AMBASSADOR OF ALOHA TO THE WORLD THROUGH HIS MUSIC – PLAYING TO CROWDS AROUND THE GLOBE. HIS MUSIC IS A GOOD-VIBE, HAWAIIAN INFUSED SOUND TO GET YOU SMILING AND ENJOYING YOUR DAY NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE! ALOHA
