Surf Simply Podcast26 - Waterman: The Life and Times of Duke Kahanamoku
Recorded on Wednesday 24th February 2016 with Harry Knight, Ru Hill and Asher King
We Started this week by talking about the controversy that we caused with Episode 25 a few weeks ago. If you're interested in the subject of Conspiracy Theories and GMO's take a look at 2 of our favorite podcasts, You Are Not So Smart and The Skeptics Guide To the Universe. Ru also recommended looking up Kevin Folta, who through coincidence appears in the most recent episode of the Skeptics Guide.
Ru and Harry mentioned how much they've been enjoying their Firewire Evos. We're hoping to do a more detailed breakdown of the board in a future episode.
First up in the news this episode is the Titans of Maverick's contest which ran last week. Local Nick Lamb won the contest, and this highlight reel shows all the glory, or you can watch the full stream at Red Bull TV.
We then moved on to get excited about the Eddie Aikau Contest which ran the day after we recorded, so we'll do a full coverage of that event next episode.
All this talk of big waves brought up a discussion about protective gear and an episode of Freakonomics Radio where they talked about concussions in the NFL.
INTERVIEW: David Davis, writer and journalist
The book is the first comprehensive biography of Duke Kahanamoku to be published, and our interview talks about several different aspects of Dukes life and what drew David to write about him.
SUPERHERO OF SURF: Brock Little (1967-2016)
You can watch the interview that Ru mentions on KHON's website.
WHAT TO WATCH:
Harry started by talking about some of the great edits coming out of Australia's Gold Coast over the last few weeks. There are several great edits on MySurfTV, and here are 2 more that I was able to embed:
Ru brought up this cool edit of Balaram Stack (not Dylan Graves) in Bocas del Toro in Panama.
Last up was Harry's suggestion of this Surfer Magazine video of Honolua Bay.
