Inductee Bio

Ige grew up surfing on Oahu and became an icon and an artist in the shaping world, having traded a pocket knife his sisters gave him as a Christmas gift for his first surfboard in the fourth grade. He learned to shape boards because when 'you're young, you just couldn't afford to buy boards,' he said. According to his close friends, Ige carried himself with great humility. 'He was one of the few people I tried to emulate,' said longtime Naish athlete Dave Kalama, who used every type of equipment that Ige crafted including windsurf boards, longboards and SUPs. 'How he treated people and just being a peaceful warrior. He personified how I want to live my life.'
