We Sat Down with Tournament Fans, both Shaka Shredder and Human Alike, to Answer Some of Your Most Pressing Questions
How come the world (humans) haven’t found the island?
By now you’re probably asking yourself, “Ok, Mr. Fancy Pants, if you expect me to believe this load of bunk, then why has this fantastical island not yet been discovered by the world?”
To that I say, first--leave my pants out of it. These double-pleated tweed beauties are NOT to be mocked.
Second, ever hear of a little beauty called the Bermuda Triangle? Any ship or plane that attempts to fly over is hit with “mysterious energy” that causes compasses and radar to go screwy? Well, guess where our special little island is located? Smack dab in the middle, is where! Oh, and that reported “mysterious energy” is none other than Shaka stone energy wreaking havoc on radar! Hah! Did I just blow your collective minds or what?
Shredzilla - Why He Wears "Adorable Red Floaties!" Reason Finally Reveaed
When not flexing their muscles on the beach, these burly bros are performing gravity defying board tricks while trash-talking their opponents. Appeasing these “dudes with ‘tudes” will require the most vein-popping, ab-crunching, “feel the burn” board acrobatics you’ve ever attempted, brother!
- REGION TEAM: GROTTO GOONS
- TEAM CAPTAIN: SHREDZILLA
They may be a band of smelly, lying cutthroats...and they may rob the shirt off your back-- just after they stab it--but they have a soft spot for all night parties and totally tubular surfing skills! Just be prepared to walk the plank if you wipe out too many times (or spill the ale keg)...
- REGION TEAM: CANNON CITY SWINDLERS
- TEAM CAPTAIN: RIPPER
These geeky goofs speak softly while carrying a big modem. Kokonut’s crew may be painfully socially awkward, but their affinity for comics, quantum physics and xtreme sports is quite obvious from their custom-made rocket boards! So you’d better hang onto your pocket protectors when you race this lot!

What are the regions on the island?
There are many territories on Shakana brimming with adventure, intrigue, and strange odors. The island regions are separated by immense mountain ranges, dense fog and volcanoes spewing glowing blue lava, smoke and ash. As a result, charting them for maps and travel has been impossible. (And THAT is why Shakana cartographers are often a very depressed lot.)
But never fear, this will not always be the case. Those currently hidden parts of the the island will be revealed and explored in later seasons. For now, Season 1 takes place on the southmost part of the island, where there are three regions:
GEEKY TIKI VALLEY
The island’s version of “Silicon Valley,” this lush valley is home to the most technologically curious and savvy of island animals. From the bustling city of the future, to its innovative TIKI TECH UNIVERSITY, is for those with report cards filled with A’s...even if their dance card is brimming with F’s.
PARTY PIRATE LAGOON
Pirates are smelly, dirty, backstabbing, immoral liars. Which makes them the perfect denizens of CANNON CITY, the most most rowdy and rockin’ party city on the island! When not stealing treasure and dancing the night away, they’re launching midnight Shaka Stone raids on their nerdy Geeky Tiki neighbors.
While the animals here may live in a primitive city of caves and coves called the Grotto, don’t mistake their slack-jawed stares for weakness. What they lack in brainpower, they more than make up in weight-pumping brawn and bad boy attitudes. And suntan lotion. LOTS of suntan lotion.
Who owns the Shaka Shredder league?
Good question. No one really knows. I mean, there are the rhino sisters.
One a public-facing PR manager, the forever thick-skinned and hard-nosed DELORIS HORNSBY.
The other is league commissioner, a retired Shaka Shredder named BERTHA HORNSBY, AKA BERTHA BOOM.
And though Bertha manages with an iron hoof, ultimately she’s not the one that calls the final shots.
Whoever it is, Deloris declares the owner is a self-proclaimed guardian of the Shaka Stones. But if that’s truly the case, why hide in the shadows?
