HAWAII KAI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu councilmembers are proposing a name change for a popular beach park on Oahu.

Sandy Beach Park could soon be named after President Barack Obama, as council members Stanley Chang and Ernest Martin propose the change to the popular body boarding spot.

The resolution was introduced Thursday after it was mentioned how much President Obama loves body surfing on the east Oahu beach and the fact that he is the first Hawaii-born president.

If the proposal goes through, it would be the first time something would be named after President Barack Obama in the state of Hawaii.
