Story Behind our Photography Collection

Meet Photographer, Josy Takamori

Josy has been part of the Kono’s team our sister restaurant in Haleiwa, Hawaii and is a freelance photographer. Born and raised on Oahu, it is hard to not be inspired by the ocean. She loves that she can capture a moment that will last forever and share it with others. Her passion of photography and creative eye of capturing views across the island is outstanding, and we are lucky to display her work into The Surfing Pig.

“My inspiration is my Mom, then came Clark Little who had inspired me even more and therefore I got into wave photography” says Takamori

The Surfing Pig is excited to share her work on our walls! The photos truly connect you back, and let you appreciate the beautiful island that we live on. Josy plans on pursuing her photography career more. If you are interested, email us at
