It is obvious from observing him, but he also states his passion for the time he spends as a volunteer at the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum.

DINING REVIEW If you want to show off Surf City to visiting friends and relatives this Thanksgiving, there's no better place than Duke's, the 1940s colonial island restaurant at the base of the pier where Main Street meets Pacific Coast Highway. A friendly casualness pervades Duke's with servers in Hawaiian style shirts and diners in informal "SoCal" attire -- but its cuisine is far from casual. According to Executive Chef David Baumann, Thanksgiving food service will run from 2 to 8 p.m. with additions to the regular menu.

Just happened to drop by our local Huntington Beach Surf Museum the other day, which has been around since 1990. It?s at 411 Olive Ave., a couple blocks up from the pier. As I walked through the door, I was hit with a view of our father of surfing, a bronze statue of the Duke Kahanamoku and a bunch of old-school photos. The Duke from Hawaii spread the word of surfing all over the world, was in the 1912 Olympics and even hung out with Babe Ruth. You might not know it, but the museum started the Duke stamp back in 2002 for the post office.

Tourists who walk into Duke’s may not know who the restaurant is named for. They might guess it is John Wayne, an Orange County icon, but that would be incorrect. If they read their guidebooks they would know the restaurant honors Duke Kahanamoku, Hawaii’s most famous surfing ambassador and an Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer of the early 20th century. The restaurant’s Huntington Beach location opened in 1998; there are others in Waikiki, Kalapaki Beach on Kauai and in Malibu.

RICK FIGNETTI Over on the North Shore in Hawaii, they finished off the O'Neill World Cup of Surfing at Sunset Beach. The surf was not the big stuff they usually get this time of year -- 3 to 5 feet -- but still rippable for the top pros, in the last world qualifying series event of the year. Three-time world champ, 26-year-old Andy Irons took his first win at Sunset with an amazing, left-hand barrel ride that scored big for the disappearing act -- an 8.67 outta 10 possible.

Yes, I know, the blockbuster event of the summer — the US Open of Surfing — is just a little more than two weeks from getting underway on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier. But the biggest surfing event in the world isn't all that's taking place on our beaches these days. Before we watch to find out if Huntington Beach local Brett Simpson can be the first in the men's pro division to win the US Open title three consecutive years, we have the 35th annual Victoria Skimboards World Championship of Skimboarding at Aliso Beach Park in Laguna Beach on Saturday and Sunday.
