This is a repost for this weekend, but one I LOVE.
Recently inducted into the Hawai’i Watermen’s Hall of Fame, fifth-generation Lahaina resident and Lahainaluna graduate Archie Kalepa is one of Hawai’i’s greatest ocean sports pioneers. A legendary big-wave surfer, Archie is one of a handful of men able to tow surf the enormous waves that break on Maui’s north shore. He’s also a leader in the development of innovative safety equipment and rescue techniques using Jet Skis and water sleds. Archie is a key player in the push to modernize and innovate stand-up paddling, and is dedicated to resurrecting interest in the traditional Hawaiian sport of canoe surfing.

About TEDx:
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
