Today is his birthday too. Duke was born on August 24, 1890 and is considered the “Father of Surfing”. Duke was rumored to be of royal bloodline because of his name, where in reality he was named after an official visit from The Duke of Edinburgh. Duke was both an accomplished surfer and swimmer and won Olympic gold medals in 1912. He maintained local fame for being a big wave rider and also riding on the largest board made from Koa wood 16 feet long weighing 114lbs.
