THE BLUE ZONE IN OKINAWA David Kelly | Owner, Hawaiian South Shore Most of us have heard of “blue corduroy” (the wave lines that stack up on the horizon during major swell events), but not as many have heard of blue zones. Blue zones are specific areas around the world that have been identified as places where people live much longer than average.

Plus, it’s exciting! While it is common to find different cultures in different countries, many people fail to realize the cultural diversity that is present in different regions...
