RE: Why are the Hawaii locals all a$$holes?« on: July 17 2008 14:07:00 »
Listen people, I've got brothas/sistas on the mainland and throughout the islands. The islands have a small town culture so therefore the mentality is small and sometime unaccepting to the outside--I've delt with both and there is just as many ignorant people in hawaii as there are in the south (for example); they are not fast pace as most people are in big cities. If you want to know where the surf spots are at, handle the locals with finesse. Easier said then done. Sometimes I feel like a foreigner myself when I go home. As for you locals, are commerce thrives on tourism, that's our reality. You will never be able to reverse it so lighten the heck up and quite acting like punks!!!!!!!!

Don't you mainlanders know we don't owe you anaething! We lost everything to Christian dominionists, and have had to get rid of haoles in our legislature; we now need wind power to free ourselves from cocksucking Texas oil slob, T- Boner Picknose. We can provide for our own foods and anaeone else will immediately be asked to leave- in the future, you'll have to apply for lottery to surf unless we hire you and tom for hotel cleaning! And that's just the way it is!

Slow down - I've seen more a#@holes surfing in the UK than I've ever experienced in Hawaii. Whenever you travel to surf you should pay heed to the people who call that place home, and vice-versa; when people come to your home you should understand their perspective and give them a chance. Having spent a few winters surfing on Maui I paddled out at Honolua at about 6-8ft and sat on the outside of someone who was clearly a local, a perfect set wave came through and this guy told me to take it - which I did. There are unreasonable people in all walks of life and all over the world, just be the best person you can be and hope karma exists!!

TB? 6-8' Honolua and you were given set wave- NFW! Maybe, inside 2-3, then still a carnival. The real meaning of 'asshole Hawaiian' was Phil Edwards exaggerated head-dip where you were looking straight into your puckered cornhole and could only be done on slower points of Makaha!

There is culture shock. I considered myself a culturally sensitive person having done charity work in Honduras for a long time. I've lived on Kauai for a year now and I talk with my friends from the north shore. The previous responses are very true. Also keep in mind two things. Give before you take. Some people are mean, But let them be your teacher. I got thrown out of my favorite break down the road, twice or three times. It is a bit of a tough culture, and maybe it's not for everyone, but it's helped me become a better surfer because no ones gonna let me have a wave just because i have the peak. I have to rip. I have to gain respect. I have to drop in on that late one because the other guys passed it up. I'm not allowed to take a primo wave and just fall.

I 've been to the north shore twice, and I was surprissed by the LOCALS patiance and over all good attitude. I mean, this guys live there all year long and as soon as it starts getting good, they get flooded by australians, brazilians, any nationallity you could think of, and make it almost imposible to surf for ANYbody.
Imagine your LOCAL gym, tennis or gulf club, getting SO packed by people that dont live there, that you couldnt even practice the sport that you enjoy the most!
Anybody that thinks Hawaiians are agro have a little selfish brain, and most likely dont surf
