In Guam, coconut husking is a rite of passage for young men. Your uncle or dad or grandpa conjoles you into doing it to make you think like you are the man. Actually, they get you to do it so they won’t have to do it themselves. All they want to do is sit on the side and play cards and eat their pugua ( betel nut).
It is also a competition at certain village fiestas once in a while. I posted this video to emphasize the point. It is serious competition especially if you are drinking a Budweiser.
