I read this book in December 2013 Its author is collecting buzz in Summer 2020 so I thought it was worth sharing my review exactly as it ran in December 2013 I received an ARC courtesy of the publisher via the Vine program My thoughts remain as I stated them that year Aloha A Self Fulfilling ProphesyIn at least one interview published before the release of this book surf lifestyle reporter Chas Smith said he fully expected to be slapped by the individuals and companies he called out Sure enough the winter swells and the international surfing community have begun converging on Oahu s North Shore so it is likely Smith s book will soon be a topic of conversation if it isn t alreadyOn its face and this may be as far as some may have the stomach to go Welcome to Paradise Now Go to Hell is about making waves and roiling up people s emotions There is a lot of snark seemingly solely for snark s sake Smith intersperses throw away disparagements and characterizations of people he admittedly doesn t know with self important descriptions of his attire his coolness and his thirst for everything from alcohol to excitementThose who are familiar with Smith s body of work likely won t be surprised at the tenor tone and content of this book They ll welcome it and he ll be able to point to evidence that the us vs them insular mentality of Hawaii is real Which is a totally unnecessary shame and in his heart I suspect Smith knows thisDespite his fa ade and persona Smith lets glimpses of an adult understanding of Hawaii s challenges peek through One passage about respect rings especially true However I m not sure how intentional that was Was he doing some subtle advance atonement or in his heart did he want to write two very different books I wonder whether anyone who runs into him at Foodland Pupukea this winter will engage him in this conversation I m there every so often and might give it a trySmith talks about wanting surfers to embrace the cinema of their lives and being frustrated because they choose clich instead Clich is easy he writes Clich is something parents and grandparents like but who wants to live that way Certainly not meExactly Mr Smith I imagine that Hawaii s surfers and other athletes over the years have felt the same Duke Kahanamoku Soichi Sakamoto and the Maui kids who trained for ill fated Olympics of 1940 and 1944 by swimming in sugarcane irrigation systems Rell Sunn Bryan Clay You owed my home my neighbors and these many good souls better and I expect you know thatReaders if you are not from Hawaii I cannot recommend this book to you Instead look for books about any of the aforementioned athletes If you are keiki o ka aina however you should take a look at Welcome to Paradise to see what Smith is perpetuating
