Sun & Salt Adventure Hawaii Team

Zander Co-founder

Zander spends every minute of his free time diving, kiting, climbing, surfing, or on some new adventure. As a former US Army paratrooper, he co-founded Sun and Salt Adventures to help others enjoy all that the ocean has to offer. ⁠

Zander lives in Kailua and is incredibly excited to support the local community through this business by practicing sustainability, and becoming the go-to shop for all foil, paddle and watersports.⁠

Joey Co-founder

He lives for watersports. His favorite ways to spend the weekend are kiteboarding, tow surfing and hanging with his awesome dog Bodhi.

Not only an adventure seeker and a businessman, Joey also makes time to get involved in philanthropic activities like food drives, beach cleanups, and natural disaster restoration projects. Joey believes in protecting what he loves the most: our community, our waters, and our lands.⁠

Mark General Manager

He is Kailua boy through and through. His mom, himself, and his daughter are graduates of Kailua High School. He’s proud that his family sailed here in 1883 from Mediera, Portugal on the S.S. Hankow.

When he was growing up in Kailua he recalls Hamakua Drive ending at Holiday Mart (Target today. He notes that the beach had 5x more sand and the bay only had three watercraft in it: Outrigger canoes, Hobie Cats, and hundreds of windsurfers. ⁠

Kailua has changed a lot in the past 50 years but his love for it remains as strong as the concrete Lanikai monument that his grandfather helped preserve as he was the only mason in Kailua from the 1940’s through 1970’s.⁠
