Duke Kahanamoku Statue

The Duke Kahanamoku statue is Internet Island's Hawaiian Explorer Site of the week. This large bronze statue is located in front of Kuhio Beach, and can usually be found draped with leis.

Duke Kahanamoku was one of the first big wave riders in the world and was also a gold medal olympic swimmer. With these accomplishments, Duke became known as a "Hawaiian Legend". In 1966, Duke was the first person to be inducted into the Surfing Hall of Fame. A yearly surfing contest, the Duke Kahanamoku International Surfing Championship Meet, is held in memory of this surfing legend.
