REAL’s “Lāhainā Strong” Actions REALized Board Release Photos

“Lāhainā Strong” is the rallying cry of West Maui to express their resolve and determination in the face of great adversity. After the devastating fires of August 2023, DLXHI partnered with REAL to create a limited-edition Actions REALized deck featuring art from Lāhainā’s Joseph K Paʻahana. Proceeds from the board will be used to support the skate community of Lāhainā, thanks to our friends at Maui skateshops and the Maui Sports Foundation. On top of the drop, we also brought out Mason, Nicole and Chima to link with the locals and celebrate their thriving scene. Lāhainā Strong, indeed. —Christian Alexander
