Kawika Dowsett is a North Shore kind of guy. His father worked at Dillingham Ranch, and Dowsett spent his high school years in Kahuku, surfing and enjoying the relaxed pace of life. He’s even been able to find a way to make a living in the area: building custom luxury homes along the North Shore with his contracting business, Imagine Development. He does so much work building homes costing $750,000 to $3 million in places such as Laie, Shark’s Cove and Pupukea that he rarely ventures into urban Honolulu.
