“Aloha,

Learned to surf in 1965 at Shark Country. Would paddle out off of the rocks at Pupu Pl. My two older brothers surfed there too.
Rode a stripped down and reglassed 10'2" Duke Kahanamoku single fin board.
Still surf now at 59 years old. Plan to spend Thanksgiving, 2013, at Sunset Point and catch some if it's not too big.
Great memories of Ewa Beach & Shark Country!”
