Having lived (visited) maui for a year..I traveled and socialized, surfed with total respect to the locals, I lived in local community..and ultimately was beat up and put into the hospital because i was white..
On one hand.. I sense that localism is simply justified racism..but on the other hand...its a slightly excusable reaction to the constant flow of non- resident people rolling in and out of their community...it must be frustrating.. just wish that they wanted to go ride here in Canada.. I wouldnt beat them up.. I would just hope they would know what it feels like to be a visitor themselves. ...and know how to identify someone who deserves some of ther local "attention".

Hawaii sucks. I'll never go back again, and frankly there isn't much to miss except some nice greenary and good water tempatures. All the locals have attitudes. the next time I meet a 'haule' hawiian on the mainland I'll treat him/her just like I was when I was in hawaii.

Here in Washington State, when we see Hawaiyen surfers at the beach we break their truck windows, slash their tires, and throw rocks at them from the beach. They get the message and usually never return. The few that do return get an intense beating that keeps them away for good. If they want to surf, they need to move back to Hawai where they belong. They're the "howleeys" here on the mainland. They need to remember that.

This goes to the Hui !!!!!! Why are you guys so hateful to us ? We don't know your spots. Me...personally, I'm nowhere near good enouph to surf pipe or backdoor or Wiami, or sunset. But why not cut the surfers that are good enouph a break. They don't intentionally snake your waves. They don't mean to be selfish and not respect your customs. They just are !!!!Cut them a break, or I'm gonna fly my skrauny little butt over there and hit your fists with my stomach and face. And if I live after that, I'll litterally kick my own arse for being that stupid. Banks rule on the East coast. End of story.

I would like to add to this, in 1983 i moved to hawaii for surfing, I had alot of confidence for a kid that age in the watter, even with that i eventually left. Unfortunatly it was because i got in a brawl with a guy that won the pipeline masters, looking back on it I should not have let his posse of friends intimidate me. HE was in the wrong. It was a big day at rocky point. He droped in on me about five times and put me into the impact zone. when i did it to him i literally shoved his nose into the watter, he pearled and was pissed, his crew surounded me and gave me the big intimidation thing. I let it break my spirit, FUCK YOU GUYS FOR DOING THAT !!!
I moved back to mainland, surfed mavericks and other areas with no problems. looking back i wish i never would have left the islands.
