Part 2: Short Story
Surf N' Turf
One blissful, hot, sunny day on the beaches of Waikiki and Kaanapali, identical twin brothers Kamekona and Kakali sat on their ArtCo Surfboards looking out at the crystal-clear tropical ocean. Kamekona's surfboard was an antiqued twin Choi short-board, and Kakali's surfboard was an olive greenish Siddhartha Gautama long-board. The two had just gotten out of the perfect temperature water from practicing. They were practicing for the annual Surf N' Turf Classic.
After one long day of grinding and ripping waves Kamekona and Kakali decided to go get a quick bite to eat at Tiki's Grill. Kamekona ordered the "Loco Moco" a half-pound beef patty served over steamed rice with eggs smothered in a homemade beef demi glaze and crunchy Kula onions. With a rumbling stomach, Kakali ordered the double patty Half "Poi Pounder" Burger, which it is very much similar to a Big Mac.
The two were sitting at the Tiki Bar and all of a sudden the worlds famous surfer Kelly Slater walked up to them and started talking about life in general.
Kelly said, "Life is like a big wave."
Kakali said, "How is it like a big wave?"
Kamekona replied, "Kakali, just let him explain it and quit asking questions."
With that being said, Kelly explained, "In life you have your highs and lows, it's just about how you embrace it, ride it, and swim it." "Your surfing can get better on every turn and on every wave you catch. It teaches you to learn to read the ocean better. A big part of my success has been wave knowledge."
Kakali and Kamekona simultaneously asked "Kelly can you help us practice for the Surf N' Turf Classic that's in two days?"...
