STOKED: An #AlohaHuffPost Roundup

Last week, we asked our readers to show us what gets their adrenaline pumping, their hearts racing -- what forces a ridiculous grin to spread across their collective faces? In other words, we asked them to show us how they get stoked.

For those of you who aren't familiar, being "stoked" means to be in a sublime state of mind. To quote Urban Dictionary, "being stoked is the epitome of all being. When one is stoked, there is no limit to what one can do."

In Hawaii, there is always something to be stoked on. There are the obvious activities -- surfing, cliff diving, maybe even some illegal water-sliding -- and the not so obvious -- discovering a new waterfall after a long hike, meeting a sea creature for the first time or devouring the perfect poke bowl.

What we found in this week's #AlohaHuffPost Roundup is that our readers know a thing or two about the pursuit of happiness stoke.
