Who was Miki Dora?
Miki Dora was arguably the best known, most controversial surfer of his generation. He was known as surfing's “Black Knight,” the “King of Malibu,” and, due his feline grace, “Da Cat.” Whenever possible his every move was followed, chronicled, photographed, filmed, written about and discussed throughout the surfing world. When he died on January 3, 2002 at the age of 67, his death was reported by media around the world.
His private life provoked speculation, rumor, debate, hero worship and criticism. But when it came to the artistry of his surfing, there was little argument. He was considered to be one of the best small wave surfers in the world and the most stylish and consistent surfer ever to master surfing’s west coast mecca: Malibu.
10th Life Of Da Cat
10th Life Of Da Cat is a State of Hawaii non-profit corporation set up to create and manage a permanent online record of Miki's life, times and contribution to surfing's rich history: MikiDora.Com
We'll be copying and digitizing Miki's letters, faxes, emails and artwork. There will be photos, film clips and video - many never seen by the public.
Friends will be telling the stories of their adventures with Miki, sharing another side of this surfing legend.
Once published, MikiDora.Com will be the most comprehensive account of his life and legend and updated as new information comes in.
But this is a Gofundme fundraising campaign with a difference. A BIG DIFFERENCE!
To ensure the donations will be spent on the project, the GoFundMe campaign will not offer material rewards or inducements for each donation. Instead, everyone who donates to the project will be PERMANENTLY acknowledged and celebrated in a special section of the website.
This means that ALL the donations go into the project and every person who donates - except anonymous donors - will have their name on the list of donors that will be a permanent feature on MikiDora.Com. So every founding donor will be part of MikiDora.Com for years to come.
You can help us to make MikiDora.Com a permanent, online record of his life and times by donating our fund raising campaign today!
