Makua Rothman single charts Billboard's Raggae Singles Chart

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 27 December, 2013 - The North Shore's Makua Rothman, 29, is known for his surfing exploits, but recent musical accomplishments are adding to his reputation. "As long as I can remember I've always played music and sang," he said. "I make music for me, and the fact that people are supporting that is amazing."

Due to surf career obligations, Makua was not able to record seriously until 2012 when he released the EP Makanale Road. His album Sound Wave has been out since early December, and its lead single, Lovely, peaked at number four on Billboard's Digital Reggae Singles chart.

Makua joins surfer/musicians Donavon Frankenreiter, Tom Curren, Tim Curran and others who must make the "surf or play music" career choice.
