A great film made in Hawaii
17 January 2004 | by jtomylSee all my reviews

Saw the film at the Hawaii International Film Festival in Oct 2003. It is a marvelous film made, starring and financed by people from Hawaii. The original showing was on the beach at Waikiki at the Sunset on the Beach event.

The story is about a cocky surfer who has an accident and is transported back to old Waikiki where he meets Duke Kahanamoku, the father of modern surfing. Through his interaction with Duke he learns more about himself, the sport of surfing and just what a unique and special icon/person Duke is for Hawaii.

A great amount of attention was given to the detailed look of old Waikiki, the costumes, and the personage of Duke.

If you have a chance to see the film or buy the DVD, it is well worth it.
