Isaac Halasima (The Last Descent) directs this documentary about Duke Paoa Kahanamoku, a five-time Olympic medalist and native Hawaiian who’s credited with introducing surfing to the world. The film uses archival materials and reenactments with Duane DeSoto starring as Duke, as well as interviews with surfing legends Kelly Slater, Laird Hamilton, and Fred Hemmings. Jason Momoa narrates.

I was familiar with the broad strokes of Duke Kahanamoku’s life story, but what I didn’t know about was all the racism he faced and the sort of dignity and grace he mustered in the face of it. The man was a hero who saved lives as a lifeguard and who broke swimming records that the Amateur Athletic Union refused to acknowledge until years later.

He introduced surfing to both California and Australia, indelibly changing their cultures and images. What really comes through is Duke’s aloha spirit—a positivity that kept him fulfilled through adversity. He was a great man not because of his amazing athletic achievements and heroism but because of his character, humility, and kindness. This documentary is a fitting tribute to a person who should not be forgotten. (88 min.)

Weekly Poll
What do you think about a farmworker resource center in Santa Barbara County?

It's a great way to create a network of collaboration and reach people in need.
It's been needed in the county for a long time and should have been made earlier.
We don't have the funding now, but we should come up with ideas in the meantime.
We don't need it. There are plenty of resources readily available.
