Who is Coconut Willie?

Taming El Niño and harvesting that sweet tropical fruit

We know a few things about Maui’s Will Hunt: (1) The nickname, in fact, is not random; the guy scales palms and lowers that bowlish nectar like a born climber; (2) He has cruised with Albee and Co. longer than most; (3) He reckoned with the North Shore during this El Niño season and made an indelible mark, as you’ll see in his edit from Take Shelter. Whether it was Mega Jaws or pumping Honolua Bay, Coconut Willie was there, picking apart the headliner swells and compiling one banger of a clip.
