i love message boards. everyone is soo tough! i think Hawaii is like any small town in america some of the locals are nice and friendly and some just don't like outsiders. Hawaii is a far cry from what it used to be. Hawaii has been through a lot from it's annexation to present day, it has been very hard for local people and it's sad what happened.

on the other hand they do enjoy some of the fruit of the good ol' u.s. of a. it's a shame that there couldn't have been a better way for it to progress. what's done is done and most of what was done happened before any of us got here or this message board existed!

if the amount of energy people spent on misguided anger was focused on betering their situation then I imagine there really would be enough Aloha for all of us!

I moved to Oahu in 77 , spent most of my time on north shore before these posters were born. A few punks here and there, stay away from groups of young Hawaiians and you'll be fine.  Hawaiians are very much like the American Indian but with bad attitudes. While they were busy being angry at the white man who civilized them, the Japanese came and bought all their prime real estate with pigs and hooch.  Japs and Locals hate each other.  I don't blame the Hawiians for being pissed about having their King lose his power, but honestly, time to get a life. Things change and few locals would go back to running down pigs and having their women walk around without their tops on.

Its a laid back, tropical place so most are lazy by nature but like Indians, they are prone to alcohol and drugs. Meth is rampant.  Hawaiians are Asians though they preferred to be called Oceanic Polynesian or some such silliness. They tend to show hostilities to others like blacks do stateside and spend a lot of time over explaining their emotions "brah" for lack of an advanced mental capability. Regarding Molokai, if it was worth seeing, they wouldn't have chosen it to abandon the lepers.

I'm Native American tribal member living here on my rez in N.M. I have first been to the islands of Oahu,Maui, Kauai. In 1975. I learned to surf at Pops in waik.. I then made several trips and two extended year ling stays on the island iiof Oahu. I was welcomed and shown the ropes on land and in the water.The Locals I soon learned had very similar customs to which I practiced and believed in. their respect for the ocean and their land wa.  s very unique and mirrored a lot of our beliefs as well.

"show me " is from Missouri anyway what does this history lesson have to do with surf spots? Can't we all just get along??If the White's didn't take over the Islands the Japanese would have come in and wiped everyone out here and colonized , if not the Japanese , the Chinese
