As another dolphin hunting season draws to a close in the small town of Taiji, I’m filled with a mixture of emotions.
Relief, because the dolphins around Japan’s coast will be given a few months’ respite. But sadness, too, for all the hundreds of dolphins slaughtered and taken captive. If nothing is done, the hunts begin again in September.
You may have heard about Taiji by watching The Cove, an Oscar winning documentary which details the awful dolphin hunts and lifted them from obscurity to the international spotlight. I first heard from my friend Dave Rastovich and was moved to journey to Japan, Taiji, to witness first hand in hopes to raise awareness for change.
But despite the barrage of criticism towards the Japanese government and small steps of progress, little has actually changed.
Many people have spoken out about Japan’s hunts, including Caroline Kennedy and Yoko Ono. In 2015, when the world’s peak zoo and aquarium organization came out strongly against the Taiji hunts, more than sixty Japanese aquariums stopped purchasing dolphins. This was the first real positive shift in decades.

The simple truth is that when it comes to Taiji, U.S. companies and organizations have blood on their hands. Until this complicity ends, the hunts will continue.
Many people mistakenly blame the Japanese people for the hunts. But the dolphin hunts are not part of Japanese culture. Nor are the dolphins primarily hunted for meat. The reason the hunts started – and continue today – is because marine parks and aquariums buy the dolphins for thousands of dollars. Without this lucrative incentive, the hunts would cease.

Some memories I find from best surfer dude in this world #davidrastovich @nathanoldfield #inspiration #surf #life #serendipity #patagonia

Lately I’ve been roaming around a bunch of 1’s and 0’s living there in the dark within my computer archives. I’ve decided they need to see the sunshine again or in some cases for the 1st time. This will be the first of what I’ll call “Some of JackMacAloha’s sleepers” I decided I wanted to start with this music video as my first post. The idea here is to spark your interest with a little 50-60 sec insty post with the entire clip available to be seen in it’s entirety at my current home @velvet.la and @greenroomsurfmovies on VIMEO. It’s a music video I did back in 2005. I’ve known Beau Young since he was a little tucker and really got to know him working on The Endless Summer 2 when he was 20 years old. It was a real joy to film him in such an iconic remake and to be able to be at the start of Beau’s surfing career where he went on to become a world longboard champ, not only once, but twice winning over the legendary Joel Tudor who also happens to be one of Beau’s hero’s. He then retired from competition and pursued a successful music and song writing career. I was so stoked when he asked me to make a music video for his first single. I was working at the time with Ross Taylor, a great friend who contributed during the last days in the making of my film Blue Horizon. I callaborated with Ross with us both filming Beau and using my stock footage for the additional split screens. Ross also did the editing. I have not done many music videos however this is one of my fav’s.
