Marvin Foster, 1962-2010

North Shore surfing legend, father, brother and super cool person Marvin Foster passed away May 18th, 2010 in Haleiwa on the North Shore of Oahu,  finding peace at last.   He was a fearless surfer with a true North Shore style.  Earning the nick names Carving Marvin and Marvelous Marvin he was a master at surfing the Pipeline and set the standard for carving in the early 80’s.  In 1980,  he was named Rookie of the Year by ASP World Tour.  Always a daredevil, he was the  first person to go left at big Waimea Bay, and  was one of the original invitees to the Quiksilver Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational surfing contest.

A straight “A” graduate of Waialua High School,  Hawaiian to the core and intelligent,  Marvelous Marvin looked you straight in the eye and told you like it was.  Loved and respected by his family and friends he will be truly missed.

Marvin is survived by his daughters  Vai Tiare Marr-Foster and Zjayna Foster, brothers Daniel, Cyrus, and Kalani Foster, and sister Pua McCormick.

Surfer Girl Hair Care

By |May 4th, 2010|Surf Happenings, Surfer Girl Hair Care|0 Comments

Surfer Girls especially those who teach surfing lessons every day in Hawaii, have special challenges when it comes to having nice hair.  While the sun does it’s job and bleaches it blond it also dries it out beyond belief!  On top of that the salt water and pull from the waves create added stress that would cause a super model to throw a cell phone at anyone.  So what’s a surfer girl to do?  After 20 plus years of surfing and teaching surfing and always looking like I had just stepped out of the ocean I decided to consult an expert – Emilia Perry. She’s a true North Shore Surfer Girl, Pipe charger on both a surfboard and bodyboard, a model and hair dresser at Salon Atlantis in the Haleiwa Market place – this is what she suggested.

1. Put coconut oil in your just before getting in to the surf -this is actually an ancient Hawaiian custom.

2. Wash with super good conditioner – I use a product made my Goldwell, it’s expensive but worth it.

3. Braid your hair before going in to the water.

4.  See a professional at least once every 3 months for a trim,
