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.Written by
Thanks for taking a key role in bringing Eddie's life to the screen and to ESPN for airing it. Before watching I was only aware that Eddie was a famous Hawaiian. I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was a snowy winter day and I was channel surfing and happened upon this ESPN Channel and ESPN Film on Classics. And was able to catch your documentary from start to finish. What a great gift and loss to the surfing community Eddie was. You also brought a history of Hawaii that I was not aware of. Since my family is planning on visiting the island in the next few years I am definitely going to plan on visiting the North Shore. Thanks again from a non-surfer!
