Spiritual Revival

Photograph by Paul Nicklen, National Geographic

Best friends Ha‘a Keaulana, at right, and Maili Makana dive under a wave on their way to a surfing spot near their hometown of Makaha on Oahu, Hawaii. Like generations before them, they visit these waters almost every day to refresh both body and spirit.

See more pictures from the February 2015 feature story “Pure Hawaiian.”
