Day 99. Waterman - Duke Kahanamoku

After King Kamehaha, the most important Hawai’ian in history was Duke Kahanamoku. Sorry, Don Ho! The Duke was a 4-time Olympic swimmer, lifeguard, and the godfather of surfing. He has monuments erected to him in three countries, yet why do most people in America know so little about this amazing man? PBS set out to change that in a new documentary, Waterman - Duke: Ambassador of Aloha. I watched this and was crying by the end. Duke = Aloha. 🌊🌴🌺💚
