Duke’s OceanFest honors Kahanamoku’s spirit and life as a supreme natural waterman. He first became famous for breaking world records and winning several Olympic gold medals for short-distance swimming. He later co-founded one of the world’s first surfing organizations.
The annual OceanFest is held the week of his birthday, with competitions, showcases and events to benefit local student-athletes.
As always, the Duke’s OceanFest takes place mostly at Kūhīo Beach and Queen’s Surf Beach in Waikīkī Aug. 17 to 25, with multiple daily events!
