Eddie Would Go

Eddie Aikau 1

I read an article about Eddie Aikau years ago.  Then I went to Hawaii and got a tiny dose of the culture there.  And I hadn’t thought about Eddie since.  

You’ll need to go here to get a sense of background on Eddie.  I know, I know, it’s technically an article on style but still…..it’s the article that reminded me of the courage and brute will of Eddie. Here’s another more comprehensive story.  He was an epic surfer.  An amazing life guard.  And a bona fide hero.  

“Eddie Would Go” means do the impossibly brave, ridiculous thing for someone else.  Do it with no regard for yourself and your well being.  Do it for someone else in need.
