Assault with a water noodle

HONOLULU -- A former Water Safety Instructor who still enjoys a challenging swim, it's an eerie feeling to suddenly be at the mercy of the brutal power of waves.

The famous Pacific Ocean undertows?  No, they can't stop us.  It's the white caps generated in the Hale Koa pool by the morning aqua aerobics class.  Goodness these ladies can whip up some tidal waves while working their noodles. The red flags should be out when this class is in session.  The truly great feat is that they can somehow get your newspaper soaked without ever dampening their hair.

So much for swimming a few morning laps.  As a service to SSS readers here is the aqua aerobics play list, a dance mix of Beach Boys hits that can also inspire a crossword solver :

Little Deuce Coupe
Da Doo Ron Ron
I Get Around
Surfin' USA
Wipe Out
Fun, Fun, Fun
Do You Wanna Dance
Theme From Hawaii Five-O

Now book 'em, Dano, for assault on our Honolulu Advertiser.

PICTURED: You can visit Diamondhead, or simply gaze at its spectacular beauty from a patio chair at Duke's while swigging a Kona Longboard Lager.
