Ninety-five year-old Maui resident Woody Brown is an extraordinary free spirit. A surfing, sailing and soaring legend, he has lived a life rich in both adventure and accomplishment. Woody has embraced the spiritual connection to nature that sustains traditional Hawaiian culture. His singular sense of joy and remarkable selflessness has made him an inspiring role model for several generations.
Along with Woody's triumphs however, there have been tragedies, including the loss of his wife during childbirth and his decision to leave his infant son and eight-year-old daughter with relatives. It was in the midst of this grief that Woody first came to Hawaii, where his discovery of a profound connection with the ocean and the magnificent land of the islands transformed his life. Some sixty years later, Woody's reunion with his son and daughter has been a powerful force of joy, reconciliation, healing and forgiveness in his life. ofwindandwaves.com
