EDDIE AIKAU WAS ONLY TWELVE WHEN HIS PARENTS CLOSED UP THEIR FISH CAMP SHACK ON THE ISLAND OF MAUI AND MOVED THEIR ENTIRE BROOD TO OAHU.
IN WHAT WAS THEN KNOWN AS THE U.S. TERRITORY OF HAWAII.
SOLOMON AND HENRIETTA AIKAU WERE SIMPLY LOOKING FOR A PLACE THEIR FAMILY COULD CALL HOME.
IT WOULD TAKE A FEW ACRES TO CONTAIN EDDIE AND THE REST OF HIS CLAN.
EDDIE AND CLYDE MAY HAVE FELT THE CONNECTION, BUT IN THE EARLY 1960S HAWAIIAN KINGS OF THE SURF WEREN’T SO EASY TO COME BY.
ISLAND SURFERS LIKE THE LEGENDARY GEORGE DOWNING MAY HAVE PIONEERED THE BIG WAVES OF OAHU’S NORTH SHORE, BUT IN THE 1950S A NEW WAVE OF HAOLES (HOW-LEES), OR FOREIGNERS, LANDED AND LAID CLAIM TO IT.
ANTHROPOLOGISTS CALL POLYNESIA AN “OCEANIZED” CULTURE. DAY AFTER DAY, WAVE AFTER WAVE, EDDIE WAS ‘OCEANIZED’ BECOMING THE FIRST YOUNG HAWAIIAN TO REALLY WORK HIS WAY INTO THE NORTH SHORE LINEUPS.
MOST FIGURED HE WAS A SHOO-IN FOR A SPOT IN THE UPCOMING DUKE KAHANAMOKU SURFING CHAMPIONSHIP.
FIRST RUN IN 1965 ‘THE DUKE’ WAS AN INVITATION-ONLY BIG WAVE RIDING EVENT, HELD AT THE NORTH SHORE’S SUNSET BEACH.
WITH NO PRIZE MONEY AT STAKE, THE CONTEST’S PRESTIGE WAS ALL IN THE NAME: DUKE KAHANAMOKU, THE WIDELY ACKNOWLEDGED FATHER OF MODERN SURFING AND FOUR-TIME OLYMPIC SWIMMING CHAMPION, WAS AS CLOSE TO HAWAIIAN ROYALTY AS YOU COULD GET.
