THIS BOARD IS FOR THE DISCERNING COLLECTOR. ABOUT THE RENOWN PATENTED HYDROPLANE SURFOB0ARD. In the days before he died Wednesday, there was much that John M. Couldn't remember about his storied life. That he invented the hydroplane surfboard and was one of the first surfers to ride the waves at Makaha.
That he was a decorated sailor and Juilliard School graduate who wrote books, conducted symphonies and spoke out against nuclear weapons. That he founded a grass-roots environmental group responsible for saving 140 surf sites on O'ahu. But there was one thing that Kelly, who had Alzheimer's for nearly two decades, could never forget: his love of the ocean.Even just a few months ago, Kelly, lanky and nimble, would swim back and forth in the saltwater pool near his home at Black Point. It was this passion -- for the ocean, for human rights, for environmental causes -- that people will remember. Kelly passed away quietly and peacefully, his family said, in his bed on Wednesday afternoon, his 64th wedding anniversary. "He was probably the greatest humanitarian I've ever met in my life, and I've looked around, " said longtime friend and fellow surfer George Downing, 77. You just couldn't budge him.
