Last updated: July 16, 2018 at 3:32 am
Shaka-Doug Corbin has compiled a list of over 235 different versions of the Hawaiian shaka sign. According to Shaka-Doug, this is important to Hawaiian divers since many commonly to use the shaka sign instead of the traditional “OK” sign. Underwater, the shaka sign means “It’s all good”. One of Doug’s latest additions is the “Diving Almanac Shaka!” The shaka sign, which originally conveyed friendship and solidarity between Hawaii’s various ethnic groups, was borrowed from Hawaiian culture by visiting surfers in the 1960s. Shaka-Doug once held the record for the most continuous bubble rings on a single breath of air.
