YEH YEH YEH. We all know where it started. You Hawaiians ALL sound like a bunch of Pussies."WAVE PUSSIES" :-). Come here to Tofino Canada.You are all welcome. Try our winter 6-10 footers with a 3-4 mil suit in 38 degree temps. Then tell me how dedicated you are to the sport. We come over there for a month in january for the "Good Ones" and to be quite frank i've never heard such ballen and crying from the Indians. Come over here. Try extreme  wilderness Surfing. We will even help you out to the waves. You will be cuttin in just to get back to the beach. Maybe then you will appreciate what you have. "WAVE PUSSIES"

I just got sent this and thought I'd share it with you!

"The guys who making all the noise out there - 'Ahh go in, you haole this, haole that' - aren't Hawaiian. The real Hawaiians are the ones that paddle up to you and go, 'Howzit brah? How you? Nice wave. You take care, brah, enjoy.' If it wasn't for the Hawaiians sharing the Aloha Spirit with people, there wouldn't be this sport."

Summer in Maui

« Reply #3 on: June 01 2006 12:06:00 »

Hi.  I am getting married next year and will be in Maui in the beginning of August.  I know that it is not the best time to surf, but that is when we are going to be there.  I am in charge of finding a place to stay, but i want my fiancee to be able to surf.  Where can he find the best surf in Maui during the summer?  I'd really appreciate any help you can give me.  I just want him to be happy and have a great time!

On the south side near flemings and windmills.  Maybe even Kihei if you like sharks.  August is still summer swell time over here.

Tutanikai, I am your fada so behave yourself before I shove a tennis ball up your ass, you'll be walking in parentesis (is that how you spell it) all day.

Gosh, I'll be coming to Oahu w/ my 16 yr old nephew who will be surfing here for the first time... I feel very discouraged about his opportunity to have an enjoyable time due to the attitudes I've found posted in this thread.  I wonder what would happen if tourists decided to not frequent the Hawaiian Islands, not that it would ever happen.  Very discouraging.

Your nephew will have a good time, no problems.  I suggest he surf at Canoes if he is a first timer.  Rent a softtop from the beach boys next to the Duke statue on Waikiki, paddle out with all the other beginners there and enjoy himself.  The tourist chicks in bikinis who are out there aren't too bad to look at either.  You can head out there too, either on a board or in a canoe (hence the name) with all the other tourists.

Don't be discouraged, there is a place in Waikiki Beach were first timers can learn surfing, it is the surf spot Canoes. The surf spot directly outside of the 'Pink Palace' The Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The waves are small and gentle, great for getting a surf lesson from a licensed Beachboy, or trying it out yourself. This is a KNOWN learning surf break, so nobody will give you any hassles. It is also suggested, that if you don't have any clue on what you are doing to get a lesson. You will get the basics on technique, rules and surfing etiquette.

Dude - Remember when you were learning - It was hard enough just paddling out to sit with the big boys. If you came to my local break with all this attitude youd have no mates. Respect the Others and the environment. Or you will piss Hui off.
