About Us!

Raymond Patterson, a well-known, soft-spoken surfer and noted ukulele virtuoso, was one of the club founders together with Kalani Akui, Frank and Helen Marasco, Alfred Kuhia, Sandy Kanaeholo, and John Loo.

Their gracious Hawaiian hospitality brought more surfers together and the "Hui Ohana He'e Nalu" (surfing family) grew...

Now, every weekend club members, their families and friends meet at San Onofre, known for its casual and relaxed beach atmosphere, to enjoy surfing the mellow waves, the warm sunshine, ono "kanaka" food, Hawaiian music, and good times that only good friends can offer.   

Club eventWe were established in 1994 to bring Aloha Spirit to our community, and to surf San Onofre and protect her beach. Our ohana (family) grew. Our volunteers and leaders give back in many ways, from scholarships, to the annual Polynesian Festival in San Clemente.
