A youth surfing program in Mokuleia is the recipient of a $3,000 grant from Duke’s Waikiki restaurant.

The restaurant’s Legacy of Aloha program earned the money last year by selling T-shirts for $21 each, then donating $10 of each sale to the fund. Duke’s management chose Surfing The Nations for its first donation, enabling the group to purchase surfboards for its program, based at Camp Erdman.

Surfing the Nations was chosen for the good work it does, explained Duke’s Waikiki general manager Ross Anderson.“Duke (Kahanamoku) was really about spreading surf around the world. Some say he is the father of modern surf. It tied into us so well, and it helped us to continue to spread the aloha spirit.

“They were such great kids,“he added.“And although we live in Hawaii, not everyone knows how to surf, and these kids were learning.”

Anderson said two more Legacy of Aloha recipients will be announced Jan. 25 during Duke’s 15th anniversary celebration.

Surfing the Nations officials said they were “thrilled” to be getting the surfboards, which have enriched their cause.
