What Is TalkSurf.com?
TalkSurf.com is an online forum where watermen and waterwomen can share information and converse about surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, standup-paddling, downwind paddling, and other sports. What unifies us is our love and devotion for watersports, and a mutual respect and desire to foster civil conversation about this love.
We welcome newbies, devotees, pros, and everyone in between into our community.
The Spirit of Aloha
TalkSurf.com was born in Maui, Hawaii. We hope that members of our community bring a spirit of aloha to their participation in these forums. According to this lovely web page:
Aloha is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect.
Aloha has many nuances and pervades daily life in Hawaii. So much so, in fact, that there is a law in the State of Hawaii -- [§5-7.5] "Aloha Spirit" -- that reminds politicians to consider the aloha spirit as they serve their fellow citizens.
It is our goal conduct ourselves at Talksurf.com with aloha spirit as well.
