"I would paddle my surfboard across the Ala Wai Canal to get to the beach," he recalls. "It was faster than walking. I also rowed my 10-ft. rowboat to school." Waikiki was Steve's playground. His father owned a stereo store there, and he would swap equipment for new surfboards for his son. A member of the Waikiki Surf Club, Steve was a contest regular, competing with friends who later turned pro and then played important roles in the renaissance of stand-up paddle.
