Duke Statue Rolled Canvas Prints

Duke Statue Rolled Canvas Prints On Kuhio Beach, a bronze statue of Duke Kahanamoku welcomes you to Waikiki with open arms. Duke was a true Hawaiian hero and one of the world greatest watermen, a master of swimming, surfing and outrigger canoe paddling. Discovered as a swimming sensation, Duke legend began when he broke the world record in the 100-yard freestyle during his very first competition. The prodigious Duke went on to win Olympic gold in the 100-meter freestyle and silver in the relay in 1912. He also won two gold medals in 1920 and won a silver medal at age 34 in the 1924 Olympics. Duke was also one of the pioneers of the Waikiki Beach Boys, watermen who earned their livings teaching visitors how to surf and canoe at Waikiki Beach. If you look, you can still find real Waikiki Beach Boys showing visitors a great time in the Waikiki surf today. The amiable Duke also acted in Hollywood and used his fame to spread the popularity of surfing. Later, he was elected Sheriff and official greeter of the city and county of Honolulu and was the first person to be inducted into both the Surfing Hall of Fame and the Swimming Hall of Fame. Duke Kahanamoku, is also known as the father of modern surfing, was Hawaii first ambassador of goodwill. It really should be known as Waikiki Beaches, with the many different sections that make up this two-mile stretch of white sand. We saw other Duke statues in Hawaii, but this one probably has the best beach backdrop. And his ashes were scattered at sea off Waikiki beach.
