He'e Wahine I Ka Lani - Goddess of the Surf

He'e Wahine I Ka Lani!
Goddess in the Surf! 
He'e Ana I Ka Lala,
Sliding across the face of a wave,
Ho'iana I Kamuku 
 returning to the curl.

Surfing began in Hawaii as early as the 3rd or 4th century CE. Hawaiian surfer girls were called Wahine and equal to me in the sport. Wahines are remembered for their grace, style, dominance and Mana in competitive surfing. Wahines loved to surf. Even the Ali'i (royalty), like King Kamehameha and his Queen Kaahumanu, were said to have surfed side by side.

"A large percentage of Wahines of early Hawaii was skillful surfers and often champions."

Native Mo'olelos (legends) give the highest honors in this skillful and daring sport to the Wahines:
Me Kui O Mamala, one of the best surfing spots on Oahu, was named after Mamala, a famous woman surfer and Kupua with supernatural powers.
According to legend, Mamala left her husband Ouha, the Shark Man, for another man named Honokaupu. Terribly upset, Ouha shed his human form and became the Shark God of the coast between Waikiki and Koko Head.

Amy was created in honor of all the magnificent women surfers of the past and present.

Amy, Goddess of the Surf
Birth Date: Kepakemapa 22, 2015 (09-22-15)

Amy inspires us to surrender to the waves of life with focus and balance, allowing them to safely carry us to our highest goals.

He'e Wahine I Ka Lani! 
Amy is a Goddess in the Surf!

Amy's best friend and greatest teacher is the ocean. Amy is a Menehune He’e Nalu
When the surf is up, Amy runs down to Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. She can’t wait to get into the ocean. Her heart dances with Hopupu (excitement) as she eagerly anticipates the challenges of the great waves.
Amy loves the Pacific Ocean and the surf has been her greatest teacher, evoking deep respect and humbleness within her. She knows that every wave presents a challenge of going with its flow. Amy watches the waves, feels them inside, and connects to their Mana (spiritual energy).
She flies along the sea on her Olo (surfboard), riding the waves with focus and balance. Amy finds the perfect attitude between tension and flexibility and rides the great wave home. It is the very best feeling in the world.

Surfing is magical; it has become her way of life! Amy is a Goddess in the surf!

Amy and her Kuku(grandfather) made the Olo (surfboard) together. First they chose the right Hawaiian Wiliwili tree for the board. Before cutting the tree, they faced towards the sea and said a prayer of thanks for the wood they would use. They honored the spirit of the tree by burying a fish beneath it. Last Amy and Kuku drew a big Hawaiian Honu (sea turtle) on the Olo. The Honu is Amy's Aumakua (Guardian Spirit). Amy is deeply connected with the ancient wisdom of the Turtle. The Hawaiian Honu represents long life, safety, peace, and good luck. Amy always feels protected when she surfs because she knows that her Aumakua is watching over her.
The wooden Olo is Amy’s most treasured possession. She always carries it with her, even when she goes to sleep.
Amy’s Tutu (grandmother) sewed her red and turquoise bikini with a white Hibiscus flower design and crocheted matching turquoise shoes. She tied Amy's beautiful black hair with a turquoise band to keep it out of her eyes while she surfs. Last Tutu lovingly put a fragrant white and turquoise Plumeria flower in her hair.
All these things were Tutu’s and Kuku's sacred gifts of Aloha (Love) to their beloved Mo'opuna Wahine (granddaughter).

Amy is about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. Her body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto her face. Amy has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.
Amy is a one of a kind collectible display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. She comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.

Amy reflects the spiritual powers of the Hawaiian Waters.

Amy is available on special order. Please contact me at: or visit my website at:
