You come to Island one time and you think its all locals are all nice. Gimme a break. I live here kiss ass mainland boy. ITs stink eye all the time. They were nice to you probably because they like your white girl.

Locals seemed to be OK, but quick to rip you off once you got back on shore. Can't really hate on them too much because that's how they make a living in rural areas. What i really found to be annoying is the billion asians who pretend not to speak english and constantly get in everyone's way...expecting you and the rest of those around them to spill into a reef or oncoming traffic (land or sea)...pompass bastards.

Low IQ is a big factor and poor education.....we live on a sailboat and everywhere we go we are are tormented. Enjoy a peaceful anchorage, not hardly, they will speed by and yell the "F" word - get the "F' outa here etc.....they are animals with no stable or moral upbringing. We were at the dock recently where several hawaiian men had their children, every other word was the "f" word as a connective/adjective etc.....what the young are learning is a repeat of past history. I guess the bad white man brought them out of the stone age and grinning idols into the space age and longevity - all bad stuff. So, to be a little surf hero and cuss is the apex of hawaiian achievement. Did you know they also beat their wives - highest incident in the states - so they are cowards to....they wont pick on someone of equal strength.

my job brought me
I have has no problem with any one but I am a nice person .I get in a fight u
Better believe I aim to win . So I take a couple of wepons But on the people I have never had any problems . Other then a
Little prejudice against white and black people in school , and it was minimal . And once I jumped the teachers ass
It got better . The thing is there are really not many hawians here they have been whipped out by the
Philipenos and they have kids here and there kids think they own the place even though there parents are
Not Americans . And there are many Asian people that were born here but there parents are from other country's . And before u start any racist stuff I am a black women married to a white man. And I have one mixed child.
So u be nice and they will be nice . But if u are afraid get a weapon.

I'm a kama'aina from Oahu's west shore...born and raised. Surfing is, for a lot of us, a way of life. Hopefully, you can come back and experience what aloha is really about. Not all of us are bad people.

I think a refresher course in math could be in order! Small Island X A LOT OF PEOPLE+stress= an occaisional headlock! Relax! Locals give what locals get has been my experience. Be respectful and get respect! It works works everywhere I've ever been! Vaya con Dios! Aloha!

They're not. Unless you are one. I've surfed lots of spots & locals have always been friendly and helpful. Just sayin' I believe you get back the energy you put out there...and I'm a haole. I respect the ocean, etiquette, and locals. Do that & keep it friendly.

I have definitely run into some extremely obnoxious locals at Waikiki beach. There are 30,000 hotel rooms in Waikiki (not making this up), and so experienced local surfers should expect the place to be crowded with beginners and tourists. if you insist on riding the line at Waikiki when a beginner is in your way then it's entirely your fault if there is a collision. If you go to Waikiki then you should simply expect it to be crowded with clueless beginners, and you should not try to tell them to go somewhere else. (I've actually heard them doing this out at queens.)

Had a small incident at Queens, Waikiki, the other day.
I decided to go for a wave, then I hear someone behind be, I thought it he said to me to GO which is often heard among surfers in an encouraging way. I have a quick look back and see him with a different angle so it seemed to me he wasn't going exactly where he was going. It ends with none of us catching the wave. And the first I hear is "you f****g donkey". I said I was sorry and tried to explain my self but he was not interested "we don't want tourists here". I said: "You tried to catch the wave just before so I thought it was my turn". He aggresivly replied "it doesn't matter, I'm a local, I can take any wave I want you #*%*#!". Luckily I don't believe this is the general view from locals.

It's like any other place you surf, either you know how to surf or your a dork. Dorks aren't allowed in a playground where if you wipe out it can be brutal. I have enough scars on my feet to prove it. If you can surf no hassles. Sometimes guys get additudes and I hate that too. But if your in a zone that's too heavy for you- Exit and save everyone a headache. Last thing any of us want is to be paddling around and some goofball is there trying to take off and you have to worry about them instead of concentrating on you.
