Justin will be missed by many; but the established surfers of Kaisers know that the k-bowl will never be the same without him; thanks to the Kaisers Ohana. Justin avidly pursued all things outdoor; fishing, hiking, skydiving, and more, with surfing topping the list. More recently he added home remodeling to his interests.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate contributions in Justin’s memory to the Nature Conservancy of Hawaii (808-537-4508) to honor Justin’s passion for a sustainable environment, or The UH Foundation (808-956-8849).
