From Boys 2 Men-an Adventure in Paradise
From Boys 2 Men is an unforeseen journey of inspiring adventure, egregious motivations, sexual entanglement, physical adversity and near-death encounters, it was also a learning experience that could not be replicated in any educational institution.
From Boys 2 Men is the audacious tale of two young boys, age seventeen, that leave their parents nest to embark on a surfing safari to Hawaii. Dissatisfied with the poor surfing conditions on Oahu in 1964, they search out better waves in American Samoa, a place they had never before heard of. They leave Samoa on a 78’ inter-island cargo boat and later join a 56’ ketch owned by twenty four year old John. The three youngsters had the surfing & sailing adventure that young men only dream of. Episodically sharing those adventures was John’s wife, a nineteen year old Tahitian beauty, in a saga of love on the high seas.
Boat fires in Samoa, a near sinking in Fiji, a major tropical cyclone in Australia, hunting butterflies in Papua’s outback and a gut-wrenching hurricane in the North Atlantic greet them on their serendipitous journey. Life’s lessons taught on a grand scale with players from over fifteen nations.
