Kahanamoku was born Aug. 24, 1890 and died Jan. 22, 1968.

A native Hawaiian, at one time he was known as the world’s fastest swimmer.  Duke won six Olympic medals, including three gold medals in swimming. He was also a champion canoe paddler.

Known as the “Father of International Surfing,” Kahanamoku shared the sport throughout the world. Here’s how to support “Duke’s Day”:
