Rocky the Wrestler in Waikiki

I posted this on my old blog back in 2008. It was a great day. I miss Rocky and the beach boys. Hopefully I’ll see them sometime before too long. ~Vago

While I was riding my skateboard around Waikiki today, I ran into my buddy Rocky. Rocky is the captain of one of the catamarans that pulls up on Waikiki and takes folks out for sunset and blue water cruises. If you make it to Waikiki, his catamaran is the one right behind the statue of Duke Kahanamoku. Rocky and I became friends when I was working as a casting assistant for a reality show that was trying to find Hawaii people for their wife-swap show.

Rocky used to be a professional wrestler in the 1980’s. He wrestled under the name Aboudeen, mostly around Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. If you meet Rocky on the beach, tell him that Vago sent you and if he looks puzzled just say, the guy who wrote the vagabond book. He will know who you mean right away.
