A bit of surf history: The Waikiki Beach Boys

I just wanted to show you guys a short documentary featuring Duke Kahanamoku, the man who made recreational surfing famous. He is a native Hawaiian who lived in the early 1900s and hung out on Waikiki Beach with his friends, the Waikiki boys, at a time when Americans were just starting to escape to Hawaii for fun & sun. He is a legend well worth paying homage to on BBG surfing day.
