this is the puffle hold on this one you know it's made out of koala and traditionally that's what all who lures are going on they made all about koala Puhi Puhi and my money those are the common winches today we're using or here because you know the other three we don't have that that much wood left right so we try to Milan without its in its four segments so you get your runners put your cross piece you know that holds two runners together then you got your hand rails with the own air with a bamboo and that you know finds the floor together so all the top this part is one section and I put it together and then the cross pieces and and and the runners are one one section it's authentic it's exactly the way I Luna did it before even right down to the last year and the last thing is so simple una it's such a simple way of doing this and the technology I never changed nothing because we experimented with everything and the technology that was there three thousand years ago or however long longer than that out of the South Pacific remains the same because it works so we try changing them kind of make them wider you make them wider the thing to pull apart this isn't like bobsledding or luge we use wide right because that's snow or ice beyond slides where as where's this no wars friction rights on the rock pools it wants to pull it apart so the way I'll conclude I made it is it's it works where everything wants to come together now that's that's the uniqueness that makes this thing work this follows slide traditionally you know they made out of all come from aha ahoy hoy and build it up right to get the small ash but this is right here we just used the materials that was available here now with an add cinder to and we can gave it some firmness on the top of it because it really is a lot more forgiving to people who aren't experienced some places we you know like on the Big Island mostly ha ha ha oh boy oh boy so we look for the smooth for Hawaii to do the finishing and then normal in that areas we went and got them you know the real small leaving right a tiny lead and we'll spread that across top and then we cool and layer up sometimes we put a layer of PT grass on top I'm gonna say layer it's just like spread out little fine and then that just helped us make make that run down down the slide made it faster I was the ancient times and and we still do that today you know but this one we need use eating this one is just good as the rock is good the big giant slides that were like a mile long what he did when you're moving really fast it was a way of proving your work to pellet or challenging her and if you survived and you were victorious where we did a challenger much but what we did was we honored myself is outside I'm an insider I'm part of my culture that's why I always start on lines eight when they're talking about all you know when I whines – did so when I wanna do that I look at them but yeah we did it but we still doing it so you go beyond just keep doing it and you talk about you now never exclude myself I'm included that's why I say we the really good thing is that you always see Hawaiians smiling and that's that you know why because we enjoy life that was give it to us and this is stuff we do and they think we're crazy and such it's just what we love to do we enjoy doing hula enjoy go sledding surfing it's what we're about and if you're not having fun ask a home
