Dr. Richard W. Grigg is Professor Emeritus of Oceanography at the University of Hawai’i where he is internationally known for his research on the ecology and paleoceanography of reef-building corals in Hawai’i and the Pacific. He has published over fifty scientific papers on this subject alone and has been active in this field of research for over forty years. Early in his career, Dr. Grigg was an aquanaut in the US Navy project SEALAB II, where he spent fifteen days living under the sea at a depth of 205 feet. Dr. Grigg was recently awarded the National Academy of Underwater Arts and Science’s Lifetime Achievement Award for underwater research.

Dr. Grigg, also known as Ricky Grigg, was a pioneer of big wave surfing in Hawai’i in the 1950s and ‘60s and has written several popular books on surfing including Big Surf, Deep Dives and the Islands, Surf Science and Surfer in Hawaii. In 1967, Grigg won the International Duke Kahanamoku Invitational Surfing Contest at Sunset Beach, Hawai’i in 18 foot surf. At the time, the ‘Duke’ was considered the World Surfing Championship.
