Bustin Down the Door

I had to show you this vid again because yesterday I saw the full movie for the first time and I have to tell you that a big piece of surfing heritage is in this movie.
Shaun Thomson did an amazing work portraying the life of the aussies and himself in Hawaii... The waves, the boards, the fights, the beatings, the poundings, the hideouts, simply amazing stories and footage.
I was completely glued to the screen for the whole movie. I was able to feel waht those guys were talking about, I was really living the environment.

And for me when Shaun says "Surfing can make it better" and starts crying, a special feeling ran through my body..

Thanks Shaun, Mark and Rabbit for "doing" it

Aloha and Mahalo for reading

P.s. We are all blessed to be Surfers

Buttons Kaluhiokalani

Boards were plenty small by the '70s, but surfers had yet to make sense of the new equipment. Ideas of what could be accomplished on a wave were changing with each passing swell. Staying ahead of this revolution meant paddling into every session with an open mind, an ability to erase all preconceived notions. The leading force of change was a pack of young Hawaiians, none more exuberant or spontaneous than the one they called Buttons.

On tiny, single-fin stingers from coach and shaper Ben Aipa, his unpredictable style gained the attention of the surfing world. At places like Velzyland and across Oahu's South Shore, Buttons and comrades Larry Bertlemann and Mark Liddel were turning the lineup into a liquid park and launching radical skateboard-inspired moves. Though commonplace today, tailslides and 360s (sometimes while riding within the barrel) were the inventions of these fun-loving innovators.

Bob Pike

Bob Pike was the first and greatest of Australia's big-wave surfers. In the early '60s, he traveled to the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, and rode with the legends -- Hawaii's Jose Angel and Buzzy Trent, California's Pat Curren, Rick Grigg and Greg Noll. These surfers pioneered the monster waves and unknowingly helped create a millions-strong worldwide surfing boom.
Like many great surfers of his time, Pike became dislocated from the surfing community when professional competition arrived through the late '70s and '80s. Perhaps he never knew how venerated he was by the generations of Australian surfers who followed him into the big Hawaiian surf decades later.
Pike remained fit and strong well into his 50s, surfing a modern style of board at his beloved Narrabeen. But an accident in 1997 left him badly injured and unable to stand up on a board. A year later he moved from Sydney to the north NSW coast with his second wife, Phillipa.Bob Pike died by his own hand on May 20, 1999.
Long Live Watermen..

Mike Hynson - The Complete Surfer

If ever there was a complete surfer then Mike Hynson is it. His accomplishments are many, his controversies huge, his abilities in the water and behind a planer unquestionable. There are few eras in our sport that he hasn't touched in one-way or another and he stands in a queue' by himself.

Today Mike Hynson still shapes with enthusiasm and a masters touch. His progressive designs and his Fish and Twinzers are being touted as state of the art. His Balsa boards are in high demand. He still shapes daily and creates under the moniker of Hynson Surfboards.

Mike at work

My personal custom made Hynson
Mike is one of the Original Endless Summer surfers. For me a magical person/surfer/mastercraftsman etc. etc.... If you put your hands down the rail of a Hynson surfboard you will surely feel this magic..
Thanks Mike and also thanks to Sean Mattison for making it real..
Aloha and Mahalo for reading
P.s. Thanks Rui for all your efforts to bring some Hynsons to Portugal
