I have a question for the Hawaiian guys. Hope this doesn't offend, but this has been bugging me.

Do they teach in Hawaiian schools that the past tense of see is seen? As in "I seen this guy catch a good wave." I can't recall ever hearing a Hawaiian say "saw."

Hmmmm..I can handle the kids insta posts when they pop up. What I find hilarious are the posts of late 40's/50's who want "to be relevant" !! Maybe you were relevant, in your part of the pond, 20 years ago, but unless you were a top pro, you are most certainly NOT relevant!

Lol, I just said Saw in this thread. Anyway, I think it's more of local pressure to talk in a heavy pidgin accent to fit in. I was fortunate to go to private school (Kamehameha) and we were taught to speak proper English and punished if we didn't, but at family parties it took about 5 piledrivers from my Maui cousins for me to realize I had to speak pidgin to fit in with them.

Someone posted an interesting video on here a couple years back about the plight of Hawaiian kids and the schools and it spent a bit of time talking about the pressure on kids to not speak good English.

If you're writin' of me, ol' RW, now nearin' 60 in a few years, well post your 1st surfpic that was published in this here fine entity, Surfer Mag, + I'll do mine, from '84, we can compare our street, er surf~credibility to each others with regards to your childish relevancy statement, ok? Pffft.

Hahaha,
local surf history is what it is,
the dudes at thee top of their local totem~pole are still there, unless they died or moved faaar away.
So they are as relevant as they always were, but maybe you just do not know nor have heard of each+every 1 of them. Y'que? Hehehe...

Oooh! Did I touch a nerve? Haha! I was sorta relevant back in the 80's. Sponsors and all that crap. I was king of the hill where I lived for years, and guess what? Injuries and age moved me down the line. I'll paddle out at O dark hundred to score waves without a crowd. I can't stand all the wannabes, used to bes, and washed up has beens Everybody surfs better than me and I could care less. As long as I get a few without a crowd, I'm happy. I know most of the top dogs in my area and they know me.


If you were the cat that was throwing a turn with your age listed and ALL of your sponsors, good for you. You got me beat! I'm crushed......

Hahaha,
I'm online for a few more minutes before I watch a movie+crash, saw your new post, yippie...
Touched my nerve? Nah man, not like Chas touchin' Ashton's beard,
writin' of how soft it was, he must use conditioner, hehehe...

Sponsors?
You had 'em too? Hahaha...
Myself also, a looong time ago, though I'm still a Quik man for life.
Lucky us, no???

Been there done that, walked away from my still Top 16 seed in Thee '89 Bud U.S Tour, many years ago, glad some other dudes got a chance to play in my vacated spot that year. If you were from L.A. maybe I'd know of ya, you ripper, I might think that ya know your sheee~it + you too might still be relevant when it comes to postin' online for strangers who do not know of your history whilst reading here. But really, who cares, nothin' really matters in thee end, ya dig?

Some dude that I 1st met when he was 13 used to sign this phrase below,
so as it is still new in this year 2019, I'll give it to ya as a shout out, ok:
Happy Surfing!
