Storyline

Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau chronicles the remarkable life and times of the late Eddie Aikau, the legendary Hawaiian big wave surfer, pioneering lifeguard and ultimately doomed crew member of the Polynesian voyaging canoe Hokulea. With its rich combination of archival imagery, dramatic reenactments, contemporary interviews and meticulously researched historical source material Hawaiian is a compelling examination of the tragic decline and extraordinary rebirth of the Hawaiian culture as personified by a native son whose dynamic life and heroic death served as inspiration to an entire spiritual movement.

the humanity, poignancy....
19 February 2014 | by (northern California) – See all my reviews

Humanity and poignancy of this documentary touched me very much. Exceptional direction (Sam George) and production. Bravo!! I am happy to recently have an opportunity to meet Ben Aipa last October 2013, who is also in the documentary. Appreciated talking with you in your shop, Ben! There had not been much if any bio of Eddie Aikau up to the time of this documentary. The documentary seems to be in thirds....the first part is of his family background, the second part is of his life as big wave surfer and lifeguard at Waimea Bay, North Shore, and the third part is of the Haluke'a and interviews. So beautifully done, this is indeed the gem of the ESPN '30 for 30' bios. It did win the Surfer Mag-2013 'Surfer's Poll' award for BEST DOCUMENTARY. This is a must have DVD for your personal library, if you can find it.
