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

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.

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.
