“Lono is a real unknown, underground waterman. Think of the famous ones, and then put Lono’s name right there with the best of them. And just like most of the known guys, he’s very humble and you’d never know how gnarly he is in heavy water when meeting him. And now he’s developed a very inspiring love for photography. Talking with him about photography, gets me back in touch with why I shoot photos! He’s got the enthusiasm of a 12 year old, for everything he does.”

- Tom Servais, 20 year assistant photo editor at Surfer Magazine & Master Surf Photographer

“Lono’s Photography is clearly a step above the rest and it shows because of his dedication and love for the ocean.”

- Scott Winer, Photographer & 15 year Associate Photo Editor at Surfing Magazine
