RE: Why are the Hawaii locals all a$$holes?« on: February 07 2010 14:02:420 »
Being the birth place of surfing, and the home of the most famous and arguably best waves on the planet, maybe they're sick of every man and his dog with a surf board coming to their home break to connect with the roots of surfing, or to "prove themselves". Only a guess? I've never been there, but I will one day. See, that proves it!

Its not true. Theres always a ton of shit on message boards. If youre a dick here they will tell you. If youre cool theyll GIVE you waves. Ive paddled out at super local spots and got the stink eye and I just sit n chill and wait and give a bunch of waves and then eventually youll see theyll throw you one or two waves. Just dont blow it.

I think the bro makes a good point, This is a question and answer post. People have legit questions about surfing a spot, There is a lot of nasty feedback when asking about hawaii. If people ask about huntington, I either help them respectfully, or leave my two cents off the post. Everyone gets the entitlement thing by now, You win, Colonialism got to you and you lost something, It was going to get to you for sure though, better the US then the Japenese early 1700's, you would have been really used over, just sayin?

I lived in Hawaii for a little less than a year. We cut the trip short because of the ( not so welcoming people ). I went to Kauai High School. And was often called a "haole". I didn't make friends right away but I did have a few really great ones that befriended me after awhile.
I agree they aren't as welcoming and not as "aloha friendly" as people make them out to be. But they're some really sweet generous people there... But only SOME.

I had a video of of Hawaii guys surfing. Not comp guys.
The way I saw the surfing of the guys was pure soul.
Perhaps it was real aloha. ( I don't really know what the deeper meaning of the word is.) It was their religion.
If you made a board out of a tree that wasn't struck by lightning you were taken to a beach and your head was smashed in with a rock. ( Real rock and Roll) It's barbaric but it shows a real respect for the elements. I don't know any Hawaii guys but the culture deserves respect. Aloha

You get what you give. In all my trips to Hawaii I've found that if you respect the people and traditions and the land then you will be respected as well. It's different than most of the mainland where people think they are the most important or the thoughts of "why should I show respect to anyone" While true some locals no matter what will respect you or like you, its like that everywhere in the world. Just go in with an open mind and some "Aloha spirit" of your own and you will be fine.
