Akahmai - The Future of Action Sports


Santa Clarita, CA (March 16, 2011) – February 7th marked the official launch of Akahmai’s website and online store. Akahmai is a startup company in the surfing industry, retailer of surf wear and future manufacturer of board sport-related equipment. The name “Akahmai” comes from the early Polynesian noun Akeakamai which means “to desire wisdom“ or ”one who seeks knowledge"(such as a philosopher or scientist). It is also known as Akamai the Hawaiian verb for smart, intelligent, or clever. Akahmai is simply the phonetic spelling, also known as Hawaiian pidgin.

Akahmai as a company was conceived during the summer of 2010. Steve Akana, CEO, came up with the idea to redesign the surfboard by applying aerospace technology. After weeks of brainstorming, Steve and Laura Montalbano created a vision plan that would bring Akahmai to life. They imagined taking companies like Apple Inc., NASA, and Billabong and marrying all three… creating the dream child that is Akahmai.

Akahmai would be “part extreme sport, part science.” The goal is to use today’s foremost technology to create a new experience for the surfing industry by integrating it into the digital era. Although Akahmai’s history is just beginning, its future holds endless opportunities.
