Duke Kahanamoku Beach

Duke Kahanamoku Beach His family was living in a small house on the beach at Waikiki where the present day Hawaiian Hilton Village now stands. He swam, surfed, fished, did odd jobs such as selling newspapers and went to Waikiki grammar school; he would never graduate from high school. He earned his living as a beachboy and stevedore at the Honolulu Harbor docks. Duke’s love of surfing is what he is most remembered. He used surfing to promote Hawaiian culture to visitors who wanted to fully experience the islands; he was regarded as the father of international surfing.
