Many consider the legendary Duke Kahanamoku as Hawai’i’s greatest athlete. Duke first made his mark as the world’s fastest swimmer and an Olympic champion, winning six medals, including three gold medals, between 1912-1932. He is also widely recognized as "the Father of International Surfing," having spread the gospel to surfers worldwide. Later in life, Duke’s charisma and warmth led him to being named Hawai’i’s official Ambassador of Aloha.
