This article appeared in Body Lines in Waves Magazine June 87. The article was called “Attack of The Bellymen”. It starts off with a little fond tale about Mike Stewart told by Ross Hawke. Hellman , Hauoli and Kai Santos were hanging out bored on the Northshore so they decided on a trip to Kiddieland the notorious dumping shorebreak where 6 ft walls crash onto dry sand. The boys picked up Mike who lived right nearby and charged the shorey. Mike stole the show when he pretended to be a helpless tourist getting sucked out backwards into this super heavy rip and smashed by the waves. The real tourists watching thought it was for real and were freaking out. Pic of Mike by Wilmont.
