RE: Where to surf on the big island in Hawaii

Kammies Market is closed.  Quicksilver bought the land and told them their lease was up.  That's too bad, North Shore history down the tubes.  Barry Kanaiapuni is opening a shop in the space, so all is not lost, just changed.  Aloha Kammie.

fwuk you I don't have to defend myself I know who I am and where I'm from.  Oh and the market your talking about is kammies.  I don't shop there so I don't know wat the family name is.  Only people on vacation can afford the time to go in there and ask.  Ther rest of us locals have to work to try to keep up with the expensive real estate market that the japanese and white people made go up.

Ignore the jerks who slam you, brah.

Puna, what lit you up, man?  You sound pissed.  Unless you get your money the old fashioned way (inherit it), we ALL have to work to afford to live.  You can blame the Japanese and the Haoles for the rising real estate market, but it's the law of supply and demand working here, not some insidious plot to steal the homelands.  More people are looking to live in the islands, so the real estate goes up, not to mention the interest rates are historically low making money cheap and easy.  That's all it is, dude.

We'll be on th Big Island, Hilo, Pua District area.  Also, a good place to rent boards?

Kau district I mean.  Looks like the best bet for me is Honolii, but doesn't seem like the best spot to teach the wife.  Maybe we'll figure something else out when we get there.  Any decent board rental around there? (decent as in not a soft-top)
