Waikiki Woodie & Curl
Costa Rica Rick’s Dad. Grew up surfin’ Hawaii, taught Rick his craft. Got his nickname from Waikiki and his old Woodie Wagon. Moved the family to Costa Rica when Rick was 12. Returned to Hawaii a decade later; couldn’t convince Rick to come (although Rick returns every year to surf Pipeline and Jaws with his Dad). First purchase back in Hawaii was an old Woodie Wagon, spent several years faithfully restoring it. Usually seen cruising around Oahu, boards on roof, his dog Curl hanging out the window. Together they’re always searching for great waves!
