Who is Eddie Aikau?

During my Florida days of surfing, the name Eddie Aikau meant "Hawaii and Big Waves".
I knew he was a Hawaiian legend, big wave rider, died at sea,
there is a Big Wave contest named after him and that was it.
I never knew the real story of Eddie Aikau.
That was until I read EDDIE WOULD GO by
Stewart Holms Coleman.
From a high school dropout, who lived in a graveyard with his family.
Eddie became the first life guard at Waimea Bay, a profession surfer,
musician, accomplished waterman, and Hawaiian legend.
Respected by all who knew them. The Aikau's had many hanai (adopted) sons and daughters.
As Bill Pierce (one of the first black surfers) said "They've helped a lot of people.
If you were giving of yourself and have a decent heart, they were going to take you in, and that's what happened to me and the others." Their 'ohana (family) was based on love not blood.
Coming from a family like this Eddie was always giving and looking out for others.
He saved many lives while a life guard and during surf contests (even when he was competing).
So it came as no surprise that he died trying to save his fellow sailors on the Hokule'a.
is a story about a humble man, his family, his friends, and of Hawaii.
A true hero.

Zombies now have something to Fear!!

Ed, White and Blue gone but not forgotten!

I deleted my "Ed, White and Blue" Blog this morning.
I have been thinking about this for a long time now.
When I first came up with EW&B, I wanted to express my thoughts
on politics, policies, the world, and AMERICA.

Unfortunately, I was not able to keep up with it.
At times I was overwhelmed with everything going on and
how fucked up things have gotten. I didn't have the time to research the
items I wanted to discuss. So, I posted pictures and videos instead.
Not what I really wanted to do with it.
I have decided to move on and focus on this blog and my new one.

I will always know and believe:
America is the best place to be.
If you want it, work for it.
Nobody owes you anything.
Just because they have it, does not mean you deserve it too.
The successful are not to be hated, they worked hard to get there, learn from them.
Government is NOT the answer, Government IS the problem.
everything else you must work for.
Taking from those who work for it, then giving it to those who don't is called theft.
You have the right to SAY what you want,
Do it in front of me and I will do harm to you!
Respect is earned, not given.
A hand up gets you back on your feet, A hand out keeps you on your ass.
Always support our troops!

America, Land of the Free because of the Brave.

Judge out.

Merry Christmas to all.
