“The roots run deep with the canoe paddle and sup thing”
Thank you and to the crew at the Standup Journal for all you do. I am reminded through you, of our friend Aka Hemmings who passed away last April.
Aka played a huge part of my younger life. He taught me some valuable ocean skills which I will carry for life. If you bring up life at Tonggs on facebook you will see what I am talking about.
This picture that Dale Hope took is of me and Aka sailing back in Aka’s canoe in 85′ from Molokai to Oahu. This picture was taken of off I’lio Point on the west side of Molokai.
And you know what we had no escort and sailed right into the Outrigger Canoe Club and walked right to Cline Manns corner at the Hau Terrace and did a 50 Budweiser talk with Cline until the bar closed at 11:00 pm.
The roots run deep with the canoe Paddle and Sup thing were I grew up and thank you for putting the picture in.
Aloha, Loch ‘Kahala Fats’ Eggers
