    mix together some classic surfer, poet laureate and SF beatnik, and you've got the transplanted from San Francisco Irish munchkin of east side Kauai..lol

    I have a handful or two of Ambrose quotes on a hard drive at home.
    Can't even fathom what a conversation would be like in person.

    as young teens we huddled around the same beach fires, and even back then Ambrose was pitching classics..in the water, usually seen crouched in perfect deep pocket trim on his Yater Spoon, easily one of the smoothest surfers in the lineup..

    haven't been back to Kaui since late 70's...one of these days..

    Always great seeing him and talking story. It's tough sometimes going to Kauai and seeing all the traffic and all that, but it's still a magical place.
