Memorial Paddle Out
« on: February 05, 2021, 06:00:41 PM »
I probably shoulda posted this sooner. I've organized a paddle out for a local surfer that has been my close friend for decades now! Jeez! Researched it a bit but any tips would be stokin'. Hawaiian tradition for sure.
A surfin' buddy is co-hosting. We have two Ez-Ups w/tables to display fotos and some of his artwork. Coffee, sandwiches, and cookies at noon. I waited until mid day so it could warm up a bit.
 Mahalo in advance.  8)

Read this out loud and felt it.   :(🌊🏄

"A paddle-out is a time-honored tradition by those with an ocean-centered lifestyle, dating back to Hawaiian burial rituals. Participants enter the water together and float on the surface, hands linked to form a circle.
   Once together in this circle, the gathered community will speak about those that have passed and share how their legacy still remains within the lives of those that are able to continue back onshore. Each speech given in a paddle-out ceremony is followed by cheers and “cheehoo’s" from the accompanying circle to celebrate the memory and lasting impact the deceased left on the community.
   To commence a paddle-out circle, participants splash water high into the air and disperse flowers. They continue back to shore, catching a wave or two together for all the souls that are no longer a part of the community".

One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"
