ManaPhotoHawaii.com is a tribute created in celebration of a beloved son, brother, and photographer. Jeffrey “Mana” Walthall shared his Aloha with all – and his legacy and vision to support Hawaii’s Youth Watermen and women will be carried on through the Mana Foundation and this site.
“I am so thankful for all that he has done to help promote all the underground surfers from Hawaii, and his name says it all.
Thank you for everything Mana! You will be missed.” | TAI VANDYKE
“Mana was one of the only guys that was there from the beginning of my longboarding career, all the way to my third world title.
I could always count on him being there for anything!” | RUSTY KEAULANA
