Eddie Aikau 2000
Born and raised Hawaii, Eddie was a regular at Queens and Ala Moana in the mid-60's. Soon he was out to charge the North Shore where he and brother Clyde became dominate surfers. He became the North Shores first lifeguard and won the Duke Classic in 1977. Tragically he lost his life reenacting the second voyage of the the Hokule'a in 1978 where Eddie heroically attempted to paddle 12 miles to Lanai to save the other members of their capsized craft, who ultimately survived.
