Written in 1935, reprinted in 1983 in a limited run, and again in 2006, this difficult-to-find volume documents the earliest surf culture in Hawaii, before the sport became an international phenomenon. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs and illustrations, this book is a firsthand account of Hawaiian surfing by one of the key figures responsible for its popularization.
