Beach Walk 611R – It’s All Good

This Beach Walks replay debuted in August 2006.

“There was an awesome swell in town, so I decided to grab some surf footage. And I couldn’t stop until the light faded and the sea mist fogged my lens. The water was filled with people playing in the waves with all kinds of fun toys!”

Show highlights: Outrigger canoes catching waves (Lanikai and Kailua); stand-up paddling surfer; Anissa, Dave, Johnnie, and Temujin; Lexi hunting for a Snickers bar for Johnnie.

Hawaiian word:
Wa’a: canoe

Beach Walk 590 – Bob & Susan’s Hawaii Vacation

If you follow the comments on Beach Walks or have joined us over on The Reef (our social network) then you’ve no doubt come across “Bob from Canada.”

For the month of February, he is “Bob from Hawaii” and is joined by his charming wife Susan. We met for a sunset walk at Magic Island, followed by dinner and “dessert” at a live Mighty J concert. That fulfills my definition of “Life is Good!” We talk about Bob and Susan’s trip to the big waves on the north shore and when (and when not) to get a car in Waikiki.

Malihini: newcomer, tourist

Beach Walk 272 – I’d Rather Be Surfing

You’ll have to watch the entire show to understand the title.

Thanks for all the great comments on yesterday’s show. BTW, with Secret Cameraman’s help, we got the poll working. He’s moved from the “I’d rather be dead” phase of the flu, to just plain miserable and minimally functional. Mahalo for all your kind wishes.

The tricky part for me is making the decision, “in the moment,” as to who comes first, me or job. I want to be able to put myself first (à la “in the event of a loss of cabin pressure”) and I don’t want that to be at the expense of my clients, but actually in service to them. That takes some mind-bending in the typical work situation. It’s so automatic to suffer now in hopes of a better tomorrow.

Hawaiian words
Mua: first
Hana: job, work

Beach Walk 264 OTR – Christina’s Hawaii Travel Tips

Meet my niece Christina and learn about some of her favorite things to do in Hawai’i.

Those of you who have watched the show for a while have come to realize that I come from a long line of “hams.” Today you get to meet one of my nieces, Christina, and her mom (my sister) Judy. (And a brief cameo from my dad.) Christina took her first trip to Hawai’i last year and has some good advice for travelers to the land of Aloha!

You can get great surf lessons with the Hawaiian Fire Surf School.

Mom is continuing to improve. Mahalo again to all of you for your love and support. I also appreciate all of the emails and comments. I read every one and wish I had more time to reply.

Beach Walk 183 – It’s All Good

Flat Island was “firing” so no need to hear from me!

h3. About Today’s Show

I was in meetings in downtown Honolulu most of today, so it was already late when Lexi and I got to the beach. However! There was an awesome swell in town, so I decided to grab some surf footage. And I couldn’t stop until the light faded and the sea mist fogged my lens. The water was filled with people playing in the waves with all kinds of fun toys! (Where are those funhogs anyway??)

Show highlights: Outrigger canoes catching waves (Lanikai and Kailua); stand-up paddling surfer; Anissa, Dave, Johnnie, and Temujin; Lexi hunting for a Snickers bar for Johnnie.

“One Love, One World” is by Craymo and can be found on the Podsafe Music Network.
