Legendary Hawaiian waterman, Duke Kahanamoku, would have been 125 today. For all those who love the water, surfing, swimming, and sharing the spirit of the ocean, take some time today to appreciate the man who shared the gift of surfing with the world.
With professional surfing taking the limelight and the WCT in full swing, today is a good reminder to step back and appreciate the very beginnings of surfing’s roots. In the words of the Duke himself, “the best surfer out there is the one having the most fun”. Today is the perfect reason to get in the ocean, and appreciate one of the most beloved men the world of surfing has known. Aloha, Duke!
