yoga4ewa A few days ago at dawn my husband went out to surf at Uluwatu outside corner. I went to film him surfing from shore. While I was filming and enjoying Gods creations, an army (20-30) of monkeys began climbing down the side of the cliff. I quickly began to put everything in my backpack. What you see in the video is not even half of what was actually there. I was hoping to go unnoticed as I was all by myself but one curious monkey had to come and check me out. I was a bit scared as it was one of the bigger ones. First it tried to grab my hydro flask but it was attached to my backpack. Then it tried to grab my phone in the side pocket, so I used my monopod to keep it from getting it. He showed me his teeth! He moved back a little then tried to grab my bar I had in the other pocket. Again I used my monopod and again he showed me his teeth! So I stood up and tried to shoo it away with my towel. He tried to grab my towel! So I had to think, this guy just wants food but if I give him some he might stick around or his friends might come. So I got a piece of rubbish and threw it. He went for it and finally left me alone. Phew! Scary! Yoga has helped me to pause in the moment of chaos and to be in the moment and think before I react. What would you have done? 1h

oldsurfermags Ben Aipa - Makaha, 1964 - "...one sunny afternoon in 1963 he took a trip down to Waikiki with a cousin who happened to have a surfboard. "We were just goofing around on the beach there. My cousin paddled out to Baby Queens and I was just sort of body surfing the inside. And my cousin loses his board. So I grabbed it. When I got on the board I already had the timing and paddling stuff down from swimming butterfly. So as I was going out I pushed over the whitewater, then turned the board around. A wave came and I paddled and stood up. Right from the takeoff I stood up and rode that wave all the way to the beach. And that was it. It hit me, and I was, like, "That's it, man. I'm gonna surf!" - from Sam George article in Surfer's Journal - Photo: Ben Aipa Collection

trimhawaii To know Makaha is to know Buffalo. Back in the late forties and early fifties, the North Shore wasn’t the destination for big surf. Makaha was the place where town surfers would go to ride big waves. In the late fifties as a young boy, I remember first venturing to the Makaha International Surfing Championships. At that time, the Makaha contest was the contest. The winner of the Makaha contest was world champion. As a young boy I can remember this handsome Hawaiian riding the waves. I knew right away he was what would now be called a waterman. His name was Buffalo Keaulana. He bodysurfed, he board surfed and he rode the big point waves when they were breaking. Buffalo owned Makaha. Steve Russell
