HOMETOWN | BROOK POWER
A couple weeks back Brook Power showed us around her hometown Pupukea on the North Shore of Oahu.
We drove around spotting cool places Brook recalled from her childhood.
On our way, we met animal friends along the palm tree lined fences, stopped in for a feed of shrimp at an abandoned house turned skate park and finished up across the street at an old mental asylum...

Q. Tell us about growing up on the North Shore of Oahu?
A. It was the best place to grow up back then, no yuppies, only country livin. I lived up Pupukea and I just explored in the jungle all day with my dog and picked flowers. I sold avocados from my trees on the side of the road. I had a horse out in Mokuleia and there were tons of cool abandoned houses from the 60s up in the mountains to ride to. We surfed the sandbars and dived the caves and swam in waterfalls. So damn glad I grew up before the total mind control of the internet. We were in our own magic world every day, livin in the present.
