January 2018 two Bennys and a Wahine walked up to me as I was finishing the Wednesday chore of unloading the old village chief's weekly shipment of fun bubbles from the ferry. They asked if I was Chris. I looked around hoping there was someone else nearby named the same. But, I was obliged to answer.
They asked me if they could see my shaping bay and proceeded to talk about why they surf and their passion to explore and chart new waves knowing they could easily be skunked. I learnt about their love and respect for the ocean and their rejection of the soulless capitalist system that plagues our world today. They longed to meet other surfers who shared their love of surfing, life, and the environment and wished for a community where we could gather and share our experiences.
After some thought, I decided to start building that community where people who share the same values that those awesome guys (and one lady) related to are all what being a Makara Rider is about.
