The “shaka” sign is a common greeting in the Hawaiian culture, subsequently also used in surfer culture, and used as a sign of public school pride. The shaka sign, sometimes known as “hang loose”, is a gesture of friendly intent often associated with Hawaii, surf culture, and public school pride.

It is a popular greeting between surfer dudes, but also a commonly experienced occurrence when driving in Hawaii. If someone gives you the right-of-way on a road or at 4-way stop in Hawaii, go ahead and give them a shaka.
