Somebody from Florida, the original from Hawaii, and I know I heard it in LA. Stoked means excited or fired up or, (a good Scots term) chuffed. I know AHD doesn't list it as regional, but does anybody know of it being found anywhere inland? It may be in mainstream language, but is it in non-coastal language?
