The Original Waikiki Beachboys
Star Beachboys was co-founded by Arthur Rutledge and Sam “Steamboat” Mokuahi. In 1972, Sam approached Art — who had strong local political ties — and asked him to help get a beach boy concession on Waikiki beach. In return, Sam would make Art a partner. Art agreed, and Star Beachboys was born. Sam retired in 1986, and Art took over complete ownership and control of the daily operations.
It wasn’t until then that Aaron Rutledge found himself as co-owner with his grandfather Art. A family-run business for over 40 years, you can find Aaron posted under the Star Beachboys tent with his traditional team of beach boys. Aaron and his team of star beach boys continue to preserve Art and Sam’s legacy, including the traditions and heritage of the Waikiki beach boys.
