Simple definition: Shaka Brah - to 'hang loose'
(Not spelt 'shaka bra')
Originating from Hawaii, Shaka Brah is used in the form of a Gesture rather than Speech.
It gestures symbolically, a positive atmosphere/vibe; which is why it is commonly 'thrown out' in those type of surroundings (e.g. the beach).
:How to make the Shaka Brah Gesture:
With your hand: Have both your pinkie and thumb up; middle three fingers down.
People say you have to make your fingers point a certain a way but no, it doesn't matter as long as you mean what it symbolizes.
:How to use the Shaka Brah Gesture:
You can be using one-hand, two-hands, shaking it, rocking it, whatevers.
You might hear people say you have to make your fingers point a certain a way but naw, it doesn't matter as long as you mean what it symbolizes. (;
Shaka Brah is a phrase that derives its base origins from the popular terms "Shocker" and "Bro", two terms that apart have very commonplace use in a chill environment but together they mean something completely different, Shaka Brah most nearly means to shocker a bro. When used by a not chill person or suspect bromosexual this term is an open acknowledgement of the bromo addressed's bromosexuality. Subsequently conveying a request to shocker one another.... (although one shall never know how they go about doing this..unless one is a bromosexual)
