Peter Cole is one of the most respected watermen in the history of big wave surfing. He won the Makaha International title in 1958 and then went on to charge the big waves of O‘ahu’s North Shore for well over 40 years. In 2011, he was inducted into the Hawai‘i Waterman Hall of Fame. Peter continues to live on the North Shore at Rocky Point.
Kimo Hollinger is known as one of the best Hawai‘i-born surfers at Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay. He was invited to the Duke Kahanamoku Invitational in 1965, and for three years served as a judge for the contest. A charger of big waves while working as a Honolulu city and county fireman, he continues to live on O‘ahu’s North Shore.
Jock Sutherland is recognized as one of the North Shore’s most fearless big wave surfers. The winner of the Duke Kahanamoku Invitational in 1967, he’s a veteran of North Shore’s famed breaks (Jockoʻs is even named after him). He continues to live and surf on the North Shore of O‘ahu.
Mark Cunningham is the most renowned bodysurfer in the world. Perfecting his skills at Pipeline, where he was a lifeguard for 18 years, he is an ambassador of the wave-riding form of bodysurfing, and has been featured in numerous films, including Keith Malloy’s Come Hell or High Water.
Anna Trent Moore was born and raised on the Westside in Mākaha. She is the daughter of big wave surfing pioneer Buzzy Trent. She is the also the owner and curator of the Bud Browne Film Archives. She has written two books and published numerous articles on surf history and its people.
