The first Waikiki beachboys were organized by Dude Miller to serve the new Moana Hotel by promoting surfing and canoeing for its guests in the first decade of the 1900s.
Miller was the first captain of “Hui Nalu”, and pulled most of his beachboys from that club.
The Waikiki beachboys became leaders in the revival of surfing and other watersports in the early 20th Century.
Many of the beachboys were also talented musicians.
Today, we’ll focus on the Waikiki beachboys who also made beautiful Hawaiian music in, “Waikiki Beachboys - Revisited”.
