Hello everyone! Today I am going to talk to you about a documentary that I watched about Eddie Aikau. If you don't know who Eddie Aikau was, he was a well-known Hawaiian surfer and lifeguard. He was born in May 5, 1946, Kahului, HI then moved to Oahu with his family. He started boogie boarding with a homemade board at the age of 14. He loved the water and surfing he was so good that he became the first lifeguard at Waimea Bay and saved over 500 lives. Once he finally won Duke Kahanamoku Big Waves surfing competition he went on to help build and attempt to sail the first Hokul'a and died in March 17, 1978. The Hokule'a set sail on March 16, 1978 and a storm hit and sank the ship. Eddie surfed out to get help and was never seen again. This was a documentary and It was really awesome how they put in old clips of Eddie surfing the waves and all the interviews of his family and friends. Overall, That is just a really cool documentary about a legendary surfer who chose to live forever instead a long life. Check out this documentary. Thank you for reading and have a good one!
