Fascinating stories about Hawaii, surfing before it became popular, before Statehood in 1959 and after. The author was with the University of Hawaii and East West Center, and his Senior Surfing stories also explore his interest in Asia, especially post War Vietnam, which he visits with a surfer Air Force pilot friend who flew during that war. Ted Gugelyk objected to "The American War", as it is called in Vietnam, and his visit with “Captain Aloha” to Vietnam offers perspectives about that war, from different view points, meeting Vietnamese people who fought against us, some of whom speak little English but know Russian, Ted Gugelyk’s ancestral language. The section of the book sub-titled “A Senior Surfer Among Bolsheviks” is most interesting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
