Dukes Waikiki

You know that image in your mind of Waikiki Beach, the one with Diamond Head in the distance and outrigger canoes in a turquoise bay of warm water? It’s real and it’s here everyday, and always has been, from Hawaii’s romantic plantation era in the early 20th century to the present day. It’s as beautiful and romantic as you’ve always dreamed. Splash, body surf or windsurf, in the warm, turquoise water just below Hawaii’s icon, Diamond Head. You can even experience Waikiki from outrigger canoes – now that’s an experience you just have to take home! When it’s time to take a break, you can just stroll a short distance to some of the best shopping and parks in all of Hawaii.

We continue to learn together so that we can in turn equip the beginning surfer to the world champ with the right product. We are stoked to be supporting our global paddling community and wish all the paddlers the best of luck this summer.
