History

 

David Nuuhiwa was born in 1948 in Honolulu.


David learned to surf at an early age, often sneaking out of school and riding his bike to the beach, hiding it in the banyon trees so his father wouldn't suspect that he was enjoying the ocean. In 1961, David relocated to Southern California. Where he met legendary Donald Takayama and Dewey Weber.


He won several surf contests. Innovated the twin-fin fish and various surf designs.


David was Michael Sarrazin's stunt double in The Sweet Ride (1968). He later was featured in Jimi Hendrix's Rainbow Bridge (1972). In the early 1990s he started doing commercials for Propoganda Films working with Michael Bay for such companies as Budweiser, Diet Coke, Gillette and much more.
