In Hawaiian culture the origin of the name Kane dates back to the beginning, Sheldon's bloodlines can trace back 7 generations starting in Molokai and now the 8th generation starting on Kauai and Maui. Sheldons Ohana (family) have always been and probably always will be waterman. Growing up fishing, diving, spearfishing and surfing. Spearfishing and fishing for Sheldon and his family was not only a way to feed themselves but also a way to share time with each other. This union with the water and eachother in the Hawaiian language is called Lokahi and that is to say being one or in harmony. The connection piece to Sheldon is the most important part, and throughout Sheldon's travels all over the pacific island chains from the most remote parts of French Polynesia and Fijian islands to the big cities of Oahu, there is always the same vibe! Sheldon believes there is a very rare and deep "Ohana" or Family type synergy not only to the native (kanaka) or people but also the ocean and everything in it, as if it's all so familiar. Sheldon claims this is why he is so excited to be a part of Team Alchemy and hopes to share that rare but ever so familiar harmony as we are all one with the ocean!
