Shaka Speech Structure

The shaka sign is the famous surfers’ hand gesture, the roots of which go back to Hawaiian culture. It can mean many different positive things in daily usage like “Hi,” “Thank You,” “All Right,” “See You,” “Peace,” “Goodbye,” “Take Care,” and “Chill Out”. So, what better way of giving your speech positive vibes than by using the shaka to help in organizing, and then remembering, what you are going to say.

Here’s how it works:

Write all of them down and then circle your top three and discard the rest. Number the remaining three in order of importance with 1 being highest and 3 being the least important

Now you are ready to construct your Shaka Speech

As you write your speech, give it structure around the shaka and then use this as a way of remembering the points of your speech (like counting on your fingers).
