our vision

Honokea is committed to establishing and operating a network of environmentally conscious mixed-use commercial/residential/recreational developments. Essential to Honokea’s operations is a focus on Hawaiian Cultural traditions and a blend of first class sporting experiences in order to inspire health and strengthen communities.

Honokea’s vision is to set a new standard for outdoor attractions that are more engaging, inspiring, and multi-generational. This vision is rooted in Hawaiʻi’s history of discovery and innovation.

Hawaiʻi has created sports such as surfing, paddling and beach volleyball; techniques in navigation, water rescue, and sustainability; along with a culture of sharing Hawaiʻi’s unique food, fashion, language, and music that is the basis for global contemporary hospitality: the opportunity to experience living with great connections to place, to culture, and to each other. Honokea is guided by the Hawaiian values that Brian Keaulana, and his father, Buffalo, have come to represent, adding an unmatched level of authenticity to the team's vision.

Co-founded by world-renowned waterman and ocean safety expert Brian Keaulana and entrepreneur Keno Knieriem, Honokea’s project team members are all keiki o ka ʻāina - from Hawaiʻi.

"We are all connected by water."

- Brian Keaulana, Honokea Co-founder & President
