Miles Kauhaahaa made history in 2014 by being the first bodyboarder in the world to drop knee Jaws. He was out with almost 100 other surfers including John John Florence and Ian Walsh. Everyone was on Maui for the "biggest swell in 40 years" so Miles and fellow DK'er Damien Boone hopped on a plane to Molokai to search for empty waves.
