The cool Caribbean street man's form of hello. A melange of the traditional white man handshake and the African American handshake, with added bells and whistles because everything takes longer in the Caribbean. A traditional handshake begins, immediately leading into an interlocking of thumbs, then the pullback to the fingertip handshake, then a dap and chake, then to a series of two vertical fist bumps. The Caribbean handshake is usually concluded with a diagonal placement of the right forearm across your chest like a midieval knight would do. For effect, the one armed hug can also be performed while the fingertip handshake portion occurs.
Tourists can never replicate the complicated, locally-created proceedure of the Caribbean handshake, so if you do it well, it proves you are truly a cool local.

An 8 step handshake process unique to local Islanders in the Netherlands Antilles. It begins with a traditional handshake, then slides into interlocking thumbs, next to a circular thumb grip, followed by three fist bumps and conculded by the presentation of one's forarm across the chest.
Wow, how did you learn that Caribbean handshake.
