I was a Lifeguard in Waikiki from 1985-1995 and was fortunate enough to get to know Pops, Leroy and Bobby pretty good.. I cant describe how proficient both Leroy and Bobby were on a tandem board with a modified oar before the SUP craze. They did some amazing stuff while taking pictures of tourists. They were also incredible in a canoe. I saw Bobby take off on the largest first break wave I've ever seen in a commercial canoe and pull it off. It was amazing. Colorful characters and amazing watermen the entire Ah Choy family.

I surfed in Waikiki thru the 1980s and was fortunate to get to know Johnny. Early morning surf sessions out to Populars with Johnny and Mendez. I was so pleased to see this website telling the story of Johnny's life and how stand up paddling started. My memories of Johnny's family - Bobby, Leroy, Michael, David and Judy as well as countless beach boys and surfers are precious to me. Although so many are gone now, my aloha for them and beautiful Hawaii remains.

I worked for Leroy at his stand at Kuhio Beach in the early 80s and I was there when Bobby got out and returned to work for Leroy. I also remember Pops and his bike... Both Leroy and Bobby will always have a special place in my heart even though Bobby and I had our times. I got back to Waikiki the year Bobby died and we went out on his canoe, we seemed to bury the hatchet and made peace. I am so very happy for that day.

Not sure where Leroy fits in the family, but had some nice days at the Makaha contests back in the days.
Aloha to all, see you at the Oct 2011 contest.
