About Duke Kahanamoku Statue, Honolulu
Duke Kahanamoku is a Hawaiian sports figure considered to be the world's greatest watermen, swimmer, surfer and outrigger canoe paddler. Born in 1890, he held the world record in the 100-yard freestyle and went on to win Olympic gold in the 100-meter freestyle and a silver in the relay in 1912.
He repeated history when he won two gold medals in 1920 and won a silver medal again in the 1924 Olympics. Today, his statue pays respect to all his achievement and makes for a pretty unique addition to the Waikiki Beach- where he trained in his youth.

Duke Kahanamoku Statue, Honolulu Reviews - Write a Review
This statue is in the center of the Waikiki Beaches. Duke is a historic figure in Hawaiian culture and the worldwide leisure and competitive sport of surfing. These photos were taken during an event on the beach and many lei's were brought for the Duke statue as a form of respect Aloha and Love [pictured]. This statue is a must see for any visitor to Honolulu.
Beautiful, if crowded, free public beach in Waikiki. If you don't like the crowds, Ala Moana Beach (a couple of miles to the west) is just as nice and has easy free parking.
Nice views over Waikiki, probably the most popular spot in Hawaii. Worh a visit but extremly busy
Beautiful tribute to the world Ambassador of Aloha and expert Surfing... beach area beautiful with ocean and surfers waiting for the next wave!
Great place to walk early in the morning. Beautiful beach area and the statue is fun.
