Cultural Day with Polynesian Va’a-alo

Outrigger Caloundra and Poly Va’a had a fabulous morning on 25 March 2017!  We shared food, surfed waves, danced along to the sounds of the ukulele and blessed our OC1s.  Big thank you to Pili Muaulu for sharing your knowledge, laughter and spirit with us!  We hope to see more days like this in the future!

I meet Brothers and sisters everywhere now” – Morten
