Naturally Hawaiian



You’ve probably driven past the painted horse that lives in front of art gallery Naturally Hawaiian, but did you know the horse’s name is Kimo? Gallery owner and artist Patrick Ching and his students paint the plastic steed with a new outfit for each new season and holiday. Kimo didn’t always lead such an artful life—Ching says he originally got the horse from a feed store. 41-1025 Kalanianaole Highway, 259-5354.

 

 

Point Break Surf Shop

After eating at Keneke’s, walk next door to Point Break Surf Shop where Toni Blanchard sells everything from wax to surf boards and shorts. “I call Point Break the emergency board-short place,” says Blanchard, who was raised in Waimanalo. “People drive by the sea on the way here and think it’s so beautiful they want to go in it but don’t have swimsuits.” She also carries new and used surfboards. 41-849 Kalanianaole Highway, 259-9946.
