Join us in honoring the lives of Mike Nishihara

 

 

 The Nish Pombo will honor the lives of local paddler 

MIKE NISHIHARA (NISH)

Our friend and fellow Kana Lui Outrigger paddler Mike Nishihara passed away in September 2007. At the time, we named our new (red) canoe “Mike ‘Nish’ Nishihara” and we organized a memorial paddle and lei ceremony on the water to pay our respects. In the spring of 2008 we held the first Nish Memorial race and Luau attended by his mother Rose and sister Beth. We blessed the canoe and Beth performed beautiful chants to honor Mike. Since then, we have held an annual race in his honor.
