Ole Aloha Fund

Donation protected
Aloha out there. As you may know by now, the fires of Lahaina were devastating to all of Lahaina Maui and the island community. Many of you might be wondering if the legendary surfboard shaper Bob “Ole” Olson survived the fires. Yes...he just made it out alive with the help of a young couple that helped Bev get him into their car. They grabbed the cats and dog and not much else. He has lost his home, shaping room/business, and storage unit . In the dash out the door even his hearing aids and glasses were left behind. Can you imagine starting from scratch at 93 years old? As we are all wondering how can we help, this would be a worthy cause to donate to! I hope that the community can kokua and help him to land on his feet. He has shared the stoke with so many surfers with his longboards over the decades that I hope we can all help him now.

I'm a longtime friend of Bob & Bev's from Kuau and hope to help them recover from the Lahaina wildfires. All funds will go directly to Bob Olson and Bev for all living expenses such as rent, food and medical. Any size donation would be so amazing as he and his wife Beverly Johnson start to rebuild their life. Sending aloha to all of you out there and especially those on the Westside.
