David Nuuhiwa is widely known for his soulful noseriding. Often perched at the tip of his board for 20 seconds or more. Nuuhiwa's smooth and fluid style established him winning the 1966 international championship in San Diego.

Nuuhiwa continued to win contests following the shortboard era, such as the 1971 U.S. Surfing Championships. By this time Nuuhiwa had transitioned from his longboards to shortboards, favoring twin-fin fishes. He continued to win competitions and make projects, most notably surfing in Rainbow Bridge, a film starring Jimi Hendrix.

Nuuhiwa later starred in Five Summer Stories.
