Has been suggested in later days, the Hawaiian “Shaka”greeting to you sign, could originate from a misinterpreted, suggested pub trip, and “time for another round”. Another good will gesture no doubt.
Generally speaking, it is classed as giving a friendly bird, and now days it meaning has changed with the times, to mean “hang loose”, or to “chill”, and be “laid back brother”, whether he is or not.
