Just seen this on the local BBC news. Try Googling "Norfolk ukulele surfer James 'Zip' Pain a hit in America". Can someone upload this - I am too technologically-challenged! This is obviously a talent to be reckoned with!

This is fantastic!! Go Zip! Just shared it to some friends on facebook - hopefully I can be as eccentric and awesome as that when I'm 59. Top bloke!

Thanks for your kind comments. posting whimsical videos can pay off. I used my fee from Guitar Inc to travel from the chilly winter UK to go to Waikiki and pay homage to surfing and ukulele. Aloha all James aka Zip Pain

You must have taken your GoPro. Any footage from the vacation?
