This lady could surf with the big boys. She was an activist, politician, DJ, and the original "Stone Cold Fox" as we used to say back then.
I fell in love with Rell on looks alone and that is not fair. She was an amazing woman and worked hard for her indigenous Hawaiian culture and Women's Rights in and out of the water. She was also the best damn hula dancer I ever saw!
Very nice vid. Glad you posted it. Likely wouldn't have seen otherwise. Thanks
Nice video. Crazy sh**. What's really amazing to me is that guys have been charging those huge waves for SOOOOO long before us, with terrible equipment. Talk about balls. Dropping into 25ft Waimea Bay on Giant 11 foot single fin planks.... Talk about leading the way. Those guys probably look at modern surfing with out jet skis and foot straps and life vests and air tanks and think we are just vaginas.
