This highly detailed icon design, by our artist, surfer, and musician Kem, flows from his surfing trip to Hawaii. Across the top the bannerline proclaims “America The Beautiful” in 60’s surfer text, filled with earth tone red and outlined with a stroke of gold and followed by a stroke of blue. The central panel features a classic beach scene of the shore, the ocean, distant land, palm trees on each side, all in the thin gold-bronze frame with convex sides reminiscent of tropical bamboo. In front of that panel is a vertical oval panel, filled with a vintage postcard scene of Hawaiians surfing on wooden longboards with Diamond Head in the distance. An antique distressed antique-gold colored ribbon banner with tattered edges unfurls across the bottom, bearing the words “Waikiki Hawaii” made of bamboo lettering. The focal point is an image of the iconic bronze statue of The Duke from Waikiki Beach, the father of modern surfing, that is located on Kuhio Beach, in Waikiki welcoming all who come. Floral flourishes in gold spread out slightly around the edges of the entire design, blending it into the backdrop of the shirt.
The bronze statue of Duke Kahanamoku welcomes all with open arms on Kuhio Beach, in Waikiki. The Duke was born in 1890, grew up swimming and surfing expertly in Waikiki, won gold and silver Olympic medals, and spread the sport of surfing and the spirit of aloha around the world. He was part of the Waikiki Beach Boys who earned a living teaching visitors to surf and canoe, and they are there doing so even today.
Good vibes, positive thoughts, love of country, t-shirts with a message, inspirational t-shirts, and optimism, all in one iconic design.
