Fred Hammings: the statesman surfer

Hawaiian House Democrats have killed the identification of surfing reserves in the State, after the measure was approved unanimously, minutes before, by the State Senate.

The proposal had been designed by Fred Hemmings, a Republican surfing passionate, who was retiring from politics.

Hemmings was just trying to show the world the cultural and historical value of surfing in Hawaii, but Democrats felt like it was time for the traditional political fights.

The bill (SB 2646) would not carry any costs to the State of Hawaii and would honor a man leaving a career dedicated to his nation.

Unfortunately, Democrat lawmakers killed the surfing reserves of Oahu and Haleiwa, a tribute of a true surfing statesman - Fred Hemmings.
