Tomorrow would have been surfing legend Eddie Aikau’s 73rd birthday and Google is honoring him in a doodle.
That’s the image that shows up when you go to the Google homepage.
It features an image of a big wave and the well-known surfer and Hokulea crew member.
He disappeared at sea in 1978 when he went for help after Hokulea capsized on a voyage to Tahiti. The rest of the crew survived.
Eddie’s heroic actions are honored and remembered to this day.
