Ma ka hoea ana mai o Mr. Eben Low o Waimea, Hawaii, i ke kulanakauhale nei, i loheia ae ai kekahi mau anoai meahou o Maunakea. Wahi ana, no ka ikaika loa o ka paa ana o ka hau i uhi ae maluna o ka moanawai o Waiau ua hiki ke heleia maluna ona.

Ua loaa aku ka moanawai Waiau he lokowai  iluna o Maunakea, ma kahi o 15,000 kapuai ke kiekie maluna o ka ilikai, e uhiia ana e ka hau paa, a na makaikai i holoholo ae ai maluna ona.
