Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii: Robert Duvall's Surfboard from Apocalypse Now (Gone)

Robert Duvall's Surfboard from Apocalypse Now

Bar changed hands. Buffet got his boards out the next day. Painted over helo mural and stuff. No longer "museum," just a plain old hotel pool bar.

I live in Waikiki and walk past this attraction almost daily. Lots of surf memorabilia.
