This is a story within a story. How a young brash Southern Californian surfer, Buzzy Trent, from the Malibu in-group of the late 50’s goes to Hawaii and through osmosis attains and exudes the true Hawaiian spirit. His story of his protection by old man on the mountain mirrors his own maturing in the land of aloha.
