Capn Doug was also a surfer and he paid this webgeek one of the best compliments ever

Your Eddie Aikau slide show at
is the best surfing presentation I've (seen) on the 'net.

So when I checked out your slideshow, I was blown away.
Not every pic was perfect, but you captured the excitement and energy of Waimea.

Tiare stops, the rest of the boats circle slowly, as Kahuna Lyman begins his tribute
more tributes to Capn Doug from Glen Magyar & Ray Pendleton
Sherry begins the scattering of Doug's ashes.....
ALOHA `OE Capn Doug.......
