The multiple time bodyboarding champion from the Hawaiian Islands and his family accepted the honor and the official statement from Bernard Carvalho Jr., the Mayor of Kauai.
"Kauai is extremely proud of this native son and Keiki O Ka 'Aina for his outstanding athletic achievements on the world stage.
