Our 50th state may soon be changing its nickname to the Alo”Hey!” State because the good ol’ boys and good ol’ gals of A&E’s Duck Dynasty have infiltrated the island! And as usual the Duck Dynasty folks were more than willing to abide by the adage “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” — and as usual, the Duck Dynasty folks do as the Romans do while remaining 100% Louisianan!
Uncle Si left his ice tea and his glasses behind as he and his gnarly physique (above) hit the waves with what can only be described as a family-sized surfboard. (Actually, I suppose there could be a cup holder — and a cabin for that matter — on the other side.)
Of course, Willie Robertson wasn’t about to let Uncle Si show him up, so he also decided to hang ten and actually managed to remain upright long enough to pose for this graceful poster-worthy shot:
Though Si and Willie were the only ones trying their beards at surfing, the rest of the Robertson clan were also enjoying Hawaii’s natural bounties — the sun and the beach!
The Robertson gals were looking damned stunning, and Jase was looking, well, darned Jase-like!
Ah, but if there’s one thing a Louisiana boy needs to do while soaking up the sun on the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, it’s slather on the sunscreen…
Now we’re cooking with
peanut tanning oil! Thankfully for Jep his beard has an SPF of close to 60 and covers about 15% of his body 🙂 (And also thankfully for Jep, he has a beautiful wife – Jessica Robertson — to do the slathering! Happy, happy, happy indeed!)
On a side note, the trip to Hawaii is a nostalgic one for Willie and wife Korie Robertson, who apparently honeymooned there when they “were babies:”
“Happy Valentines Day!!! With my valentine on our honeymoon in Hawaii! #aloha #love #wewerebabies #tbt” Korie tweeted yesterday, along with the photo above.
Though no A&E cameras could be seen in the pictures, I can’t imagine they weren’t present recording all this duck-out-of-water glory for upcoming episodes! And speaking of upcoming episodes, Duck Dynasty returns for it’s third season on Wednesday, February 27 at 10/9c on A&E!

UPDATE – Just ran across this on the ifish.net message board from member Birdy Drifter:
Just got back from Kona yesterday. While I was at the airport the whole Robertson family from Duck Dynasty had just got in and were doing some filming. After a bit they all started meandering around so I went to Dad Robertson or Phil and got a hand shake and a quick word with him. Man they sure seem like a reel bunch of fun folks to be around. Great family values… Anyway according to Yahoo the vacation episode is going to be season 3’s finally. I guess you never know who you going to run into and where.
There’s just never a bad Duck Dynasty fan story 🙂
