Happy Birthday Duke http://www.sandiegosurfingschool.com/happy-birthday-duke/ http://www.sandiegosurfingschool.com/happy-birthday-duke/#comments Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:01:37 +0000 http://www.sandiegosurfingschool.com/?p=9711 How to Surf san diego

Happy Birthday Duke!

Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku (August 24, 1890 – January 22, 1968) was an American competition swimmer of ethnic Hawaiian background, who is widely credited with spreading the sport of surfing. He was a five-time Olympic medalist in swimming. He was also an actor, lawman, early beach volleyball player, and businessman.

Known as the Ambassador of Aloha, Kahanamoku traveled the world, bringing surfing to the likes of California, Australia and New Zealand over his lifetime. Aug. 24 marks what would’ve been Kahanamoku’s 125th birthday — he passed away in 1968.

On his native Hawaii, Kahanamoku was known for much more than just riding waves. He first built his reputation as a swimming champion, winning five Olympic medals over the course of his career. His success also enabled him to raise the profile of Hawaii’s true passion of surfing.

Kahanamoku was also elected the sheriff of his home county 13 times and starred in over a dozen movies. Most importantly, he is credited with helping the Hawaiian islands achieve statehood in 1959.

The ASP program offers surfing for beginners and intermediate surfers. ASP was designed for many of our summer camp surfers to continue progressing their surfing as well as for newcomers to surfing all together.

Our surf coaches will teach new surfers the basics of surfing including surfing etiquette, wave selection, ocean safety and awareness, and wave creation. Previous surfers will work with coaches to enhance their current surfing levels including turns, tricks, wave strategy, physics of waves, and beach environment.

All ASP participants starting in September will be entered into the San Diego Surf School Annual Surf Contest, held in North Pacific Beach in October (stay tuned for the date).
