Heat Score - 88

According to most of the historical accounts that I have read, Rabbit Kekai and the Wakiki Beach Boys created the sport of paddle boarding on Longboards. Rabbit and his crew figured out that standing up on an overgrown longboard with a paddle was the most effective way to teach "Joey from Poughkeepsie" how to surf. Throw in 20 years of guys like Laird Hamilton experimenting with this idea, and you've got a full blown sport. Read more HERE.
