Inductee Bio

Kenny Tilton grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii and first started surfing Waikiki in the early 1950's. His first surfboard was a redwood surfboard then moved on to a balsa surfboard as it was lighter and more maneuverable. Waikiki during the 1950's was changing and it was fun to be a surfer, back then local Beach Boys would watch over them whenever they went out in the water and show them the ropes on how to surf as the south swells of summer rolled in. During the summer Kenny and his best friends Bobby and Leroy Achoy would work for Barry Napolean and Bobby Crewson on the beach at Waikiki.
