Kari has been such a powerhouse ever since she started volunteering. Eager to get to work how ever she could we appreciated any time she could come down to one of our programs. She even stepped in as a scheduler at our Kualoa Day at the Beach which is no easy task. She does everything with such grace, a beautiful smile and an incredible attitude. We will miss you so much Kari! We hope to see you again soon!



Tell us a little about yourself

My name is Kari Pabis Moss a mom of two loud, athletic boys Conner 9 and Tucker 7. I married my 6th grade bestfriend, now Air Force Pilot Jeff!  I am a born and raised water girl from Massachusetts!  Love any and all water sports from waterskiing, sailing, surfing, paddling, scuba!  But also love hiking, and all land sports especially those including wheels!

How did you hear about or start with Accessurf?

So sept 18, 2019 I was introduced to Ann Yoshida in a Wednesday morning paddling group, the rest is history!  I said yes because she didn’t know the word no!

What does AccesSurf mean to you?

AccesSurf serves all souls whether you are seeking help or giving help.  I always leave the events with a bigger heart than I attended.

What is your favorite AccesSurf Memory?

November 16, 2019 I volunteered at my first AccesSurf, HAPA, Honolulu Pearl paddle event!  It was epic and most memorable!  I was teamed up with two blind friends who’s parents resided in colorado. I remember them asking me to describe the landscape and it nearly brought me to tears!  Then after Covid the same couple brought their son to November 6, 2021 Lucas and Jeremy and as I had my back turned and was transferring someone else, Jeremy said my name, and I melted. They remembered my voice, and man I was hooked!

Anything you want to say or share with our AccesSurf ‘ohana?

My favorite part of AccesSurf is hearing all the stories.  Story is such a gift to all who listen.
Again mahalo!
