He was then admitted to Saint John's hospital in Santa Monica California to fight the disease with a holistic approach.

Adding to the problem, doctors found Buttons also had pneumonia....Please see the entire story and interview with Makua Rothman. GO HERE

   

Montgomery 'Buttons' Kaluhiokalani passes away in California Saturday morning Nov2 2013

Hawaiian set the standard for radical skate-inspired surfing in the 1970s

The Surfing World and Hawaii lose a legend. 2 November, 2013 : Over the clicking of a celluloid reel, a stiff narrator says about  Montgomery “Buttons” Kaluhiokalani "Sometimes his surfing is so radical, it makes him look like a wizard casting spells over the waves." Today at age 55 Buttons passed as a result of complications related to lung cancer.

In the 1970s Buttons, along with Mark Liddell and Larry Bertlemann took the shortboard revolution to the next level with radical skate-inspired maneuvers. Buttons polished his act with switch-stance off-the-lips, 360s and laybacks - moves that were incredibly futuristic at the time.

DAY 3 is ON for Friday + Day 2 Recap of HIC Pro with Tahitian teen Keoni Yan

Aspiring talent is easily lost in the sea of highly publicized international surfing stars and world title events these days. But it's qualifying competitions like the HIC Pro, currently underway at Sunset Beach, that are both the bread and butter of those working to climb the ranks, and rare opportunities to learn to perform at world famous venues like this. It was an opportunity that Tahitian teenager Keoni Yan, 18, seized with both hands today.

   

Catching up with JJF

  

John John Florence’s title hopes were dashed early in the season, but that hasn’t stopped him from being one of the most celebrated surfers on tour this year, beginning with his performance at Fiji.

John John Florence has been one of the most intriguing additions to the ASP World Tour in decades. In 2012, his first full season competing at the elite level, the 19-year-old Hawaiian came within striking distance of the world title. Not surprisingly, he was expected to be in the hunt this year, but an early season injury at the Quiksilver Pro put an immediate end to those plans.

While the world cries 'biggest wave ever ridden' Laird pauses, offers insight

30 October, 2013 :  Laird Hamilton recently talked to CNN about Carlos Burle's monster wave caught at Nazare on October 28. In the interview Hamilton calls into question whether Burle can claim the biggest wave title on a wave he did not complete - Burle made the drop to the bottom and was doing fine but got mowed down a short while later by an immense wall of whitewater.

"First of all, to set a world record you need to make the wave," said Hamilton. "I believe Carlos did not make the wave."
