Shaka sign

The shaka sign, sometimes known as "hang loose", is a gesture of friendly intent often associated with Hawaii, and surf culture. It consists of extending the thumb and smallest finger while holding the three middle fingers curled, and gesturing in salutation while presenting the front of the hand; the hand may be rotated back and forth for emphasis. The shaka sign was adopted from local Hawaiian culture and customs by visiting surfers in the 1960s, and its use has spread around the world.

Hang loose y'all

This is one of my favorite pictures I've ever taken- the beautiful sun reflecting on the wet sand, my hair full of beach waves and natural highlights, and my ring my boyfriend gave me. Pure bliss.
