traditional Hawaiian greeting was to Alo'Ha. Alo (face to face) Ha (breath) to share breath. those that shook hands were Ha (breath)Ole (without) or those that did not "share breath" thus foreigners. Haole is a very flexible word. hard core islanders that talk Mainland kine will be called Haole. want to call someone you do not like a nigger to his face - Haole!
two days off Peru point. nothing to write home about but the water was clear, the winds side to offshore and the swell fecken way more than expected. even the water was not as fecken cold as usual. fun for paddle and good tune up. why the good swell always show on the week end?
