About Karlee: A sponsored free-surfer, free-spirit and eclectic artist with an endless source of inspiration to draw from, Karlee-Anne Louise Mackie (Kalm) follows an approach to mixed media canvases that creates elevating, unique artworks seeping of life and soul. While on tour-competing on the surfing world qualifying series she began painting her friends’ surfboards, and now she is one of the wickedly lucky few females in the world that travels and explores surf culture for a career. With the support of her sponsors Rusty, Electric, AERIAL7, Urge footwear and Streetboardz, Karlee has been able to explore the side of herself that developed her artistic talent.

ABOUT KONA: Kona Brewing Company was started in the spring of 1994 by father and son team Cameron Healy and Spoon Khalsa. Originally from Oregon, the pair saw a need to create fresh, locally made brews wit the same spirit and passion for quality that existed in the Pacific Northwest. Because of their great love for the Big Island, the Kona Coast in particular, they wanted to build a business that would benefit the island and would not harm the pristine environment. The happy result of this dream is the brewery in Kailua-Kona.
Kona Brewing Company is committed to producing and marketing the finest handcrafted ales and lagers with its exceptional team of motivated individuals who are passionate about quality and care about working in an environment where integrity, good will and discipline are the codes. Kona Brewing Company always strives for leadership in everything that it does and serves the needs of its customers, suppliers and shareholders with skill and positive motivation. The company respects the effects of alcohol and stands for the consumption of quality in moderation. Ale-oha and cheers!
