Another Maui Goofyfooter Worthy Of Your Viewing

An opihi is a Hawaiian shellfish known for sticking to rocks and one area for most of its life, only moving for the sake of food, mating, or if the waves breaking above them force them to. Maui local Braiden Maither self-identifies with his home-island’s aquatic inhabitant. Because he’s a homebody, and knows it. So there’s nothing wrong with a little cheery self-deprecation. Especially when it’s backed up with a clean style (echoes of fellow hometown goofy Clay Marzo, perhaps?), crisp skills (those airs!), and a little panache (that pink shirt and front-foot traction combo is really something).
