TODD BRADLEY and BRIAN KEAULANA - Founders of C4 Waterman

More than highly innovative products, the founders and owners of C4 Waterman, Hawaii-based manufacturers of surfing equipment, have taken to fore the marketing of their lifestyle. Todd Bradley, Brian Keaulana, and Mike Fox base their business philosophy on the four core disciplines of a waterman – balance, endurance, strength, and tradition – leading to their C4 brand. And beyond their mission of advocating the waterman way of life, the C4 owners have grounded a foundation that they hope would protract their already socially veered mindset.

Four months in to their business venture, Bradley, Keaulana and Fox are already riding the huge and fast waves of entrepreneurial success that they wish to reflect back to the community soon.

Born Saleva’a Fauali Atisano’e, Konishiki Yasokichi was the first foreign-born sumo wrestler to be named champion or Ozeki.

Konishiki has appeared in several TV advertisements for Japanese companies and products. He is also an established recording artist, debuting in the music scene in 2000.

All of Konishiki’s successes are put in to good use as he strives to uplift the lives of not only his family and relatives but also the hundreds of children who are on the verge of losing hope at such a young age. Konishiki founded the Konishiki Kids Foundation to mentor and guide disadvantaged children towards the right path. One of the main philosophies that the foundation wants to put forward is the idea that children have a “choice”.
