Hawaiian surfer community mourns the loss of Makani Alexander, son of famous surfer Kala Alexander.
Makani Alexander, son of famous surfer, North Shore enforcer, and surf gang WolfPak founder, Kala Alexander, has been shot and killed late Sunday night in Waialua, near Haleiwa. He was 25 years old. Our thoughts and prayers are with family and friends.
What happened to Kala Alexander’s son, Makani Alexander?
Makani Alexander was shot dead in Waialua, Oahu, Hawaii, late Sunday night. Hawaii News Now shared that “CPR was attempted on the 25-year-old victim in an attempt to revive him, but sadly, this attempt was unsuccessful. The sad announcement that the young man had passed away from his wounds was made this morning at 12:35 a.m.”
The identity of the shooter has not been revealed. The motive behind violent crime is also shrouded in mystery. This is a developing story. We will update the readers as soon as new information surfaces.
Makani was a cherished son of Kala Alexander and a father of a one-year-old son. He was a diver and helped run his father’s business, Haleiwa Shark Tours, Shark Cage Diving on Oahu’s North Shore.
Who is Kala Alexander?
Kala Alexander was a native of North Shore, Hawaii. He is part of the Kuauai crew, including three-time World Champion Andy Irons. He founded the surf gang WolfPak, which consists of surfers from Kauai. Alexander is the enforcer of the group. He believes in preserving the value of respect to experienced surfers and native Hawaiians and protects surfers from the area’s life-threatening waves. The New York Times profiled Kala and his buddies in 2009 and wrote, “They are known as WolPak or simply “the boys.
” They use fear and their fists to command respect in the surf along the North Shore of Oahu, a seven-mile stretch of some of the world’s most renowned waves. At the celebrated Banzai Pipeline, they determine which waves go to whom, and punish those who breach their code of respect for local residents and waves.”
Kala Alexander is also an actor and has worked on notable projects such as ‘Blue Crush,’ ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshal,’ and ‘Hawaii Five-O.’ He also starred in 2007 ‘The 808,’ a reality TV show about the WolfPak and the North Shore.
He also appeared in a special for Disney Channel’s Shark Week in 2014 called “Sharkageddeon.” It attempts to explain why shark attacks are increasing in Hawaii. He appeared in an episode of ‘Shark After Dark,’ in which he discussed his experience filming that episode.
Alexander is the Vice president of Mauli Ola Foundation, an organization for people with cystic fibrosis. Alexander visits with children in hospitals in Hawaii and gives them surfing lessons.
We offer our heartfelt sympathies to the grieving family and friends. We sincerely hope the perpetrator will be brought to justice. May Makani’s soul rest in peace.
