Hawaiian Style

So I did some basic digging around and wasn't able to find a thread that actually discusses the origins of the term "Hawaiian Style" air setups. I've been playing for about 20 years or so and only learned about the style a couple years ago when another player complimented a build of mine that features a small tank mounted 'backwards' and informed me there was a name for that sort of thing.

Ever since I've become slightly obsessed with collecting pics of Hawaiin Style setups and learning more about the history. Can y'all help me out with my collection and maybe share your knowledge?

My humble (and kinda-sorta unusual) Hawaiin Style contribution

I really like the aesthetic of the backwards tank, this is really awesome!

Here is something i bought from someone on here awhile back, been messing around with it and having a blast. I dont know about the history of Hawaiian style, but i do know it allows you to get really close and tight in your bunkers.

Dont wanna get off topic bragging about it, but 10/10 would recommend making yourself one. Check out my build notes here:

Okay yeah, that's sorta what I thought. I wonder what year/team name /sorta setups they were using at the time.

In the 90s-early 2ks, I had a minimal with a stainless barrel set up like that, with a reversed benchmark drop. The weight of the barrel and heavy hpa bottle regs back then put the center of the balance right on the grip frame, in addition to making it extremely compact (also tall).

I rock Hawaiian style. Lots of markers set up this way over the years. This is one of my go-to's:





Some more:







Most of these setups have changed at least a little since then, and I don't have many of these markers anymore, but when I can make it work, I dig Hawaiian. In a lot of situations, the air line gets in the way, either inhibiting the tank itself, or messing with the arm holding the grip frame, which is why I've changed many of my markers to vertical air (only the Sniper is still Hawaiian, revised the Phantom, sold the Blazer and Sterling. But the balance is as good as it gets.

Idk what the history of it is but I'm willing to bet that it's something along the lines of Hawaiian pizza, didn't actually come from Hawaii.

The the pizzas story, actually comes from Canada

Evil Canadians putting pineapple on pizza and then blaming the Hawaiians....
