  • Rabbit Kekai
  • Duke Kahanamoku
  • Eddie Aikau

Correct Answer: Duke Kahanamoku

Fact: Five-time Olympic swimming medalist Duke Kahanamoku started surfing as a teenager at Waikiki Beach. He surfed on a massive 16-foot longboard that weighed over 100 pounds. From 1915-32 he helped bring surfing from Hawaii to the United States, particularly Southern California.

Question 2: Where are the highest surfing waves in the US?

  • Cannon Beach, OR
  • Pe’ahi ‘Jaws’ surf break, HI
  • Mavericks Beach, CA

Correct Answer: Pe’ahi ‘Jaws’ surf break, HI

Fact: Jaws surf break, whose ferocious waves have been likened to a shark attack, is a breathtaking but dangerous stretch of water at Pe'ahi on Maui's North Shore. The waves have been reported to reach heights of 80 feet. Surfers are usually towed into position, a practice that was pioneered there.

Question 3: What classic surfing movie starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze?

  • Point Break
  • Endless Summer
  • Dirty Dancing

Correct Answer: Point Break

Fact: As much as we'd like the answer to be 'Dirty Dancing,' this dynamic duo starred in the 1991 surf/bank heist thriller 'Point Break'—not to be confused with the 2015 remake, which failed to make a splash and sank without a trace.
