  • Hauʻoli Lā Hānau, Duke Kahanamoku. Born in the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi on August 24, 1890, Kahanamoku's legacy and milestone achievements are well-known and documented: He's credited for gifting the world the art and sport of surfing. He revolutionized competitive swimming by introducing the flutter kick. He then subsequently won five Olympic medals for swimming. He rescued several swimmers from drowning off Corona Del Mar, California in 1925. And he was the sheriff-elect of Honolulu. #dukekahanamoku

  • A rather withered image of Duke Kahanamoku caught our interest and never knew that other than being the world’s father of surfing, he was also a 4-time Olympic Gold Medalist Swimming world record holder. And by happenstance, we managed to conquer our curiosity by taking a peek inside the Ft. Lauderdale Aquatic Center where national swim meets and diving championships are held. Adjacent to this facility is the International Swimming Hall of Fame. So what comes with its territory? A Hall of Fame Drive and a Hall of Fame Beach. #fortlauderdale #ishf #swimming #dukekahanamoku #aquaticcenter #halloffame
