Hawaiian Surfing Association: Kimo began working with HASA/HSA as Water Safety in 1999. His commitment to HSA has gained him a Vice President status since 2015. Kimo can also be seen at the major World Surf League Events in Hawaii as Event Security under his company Kanaka Security Solutions. He is also the Security Head of the World Famous “The Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau”. His vocation is an Iron worker Local 625 with Associated Steel Ltd. While Leong describes himself as a big teddy bear, he’s an undeniable fixture and patriarch of Makaha, and his insight makes a lot of sense: show respect, study the water, and clean up your opala when you leave. It’s paradise, so we all share in that responsibility to keep our beaches pristine for the keiki and generations to come. He is also known as the Kona Brewing Ambassador.
