de vis-norton : sport of princes, 1916
Summer and winter in Hawaii surfboard riding and outrigger
canoe coasting on the waves reign king and queen of sports.
Many who learn to ride the elusive surfboard remain months
and years in Hawaii instead of the weeks they had intended.

Honolulu, January, 1911.
Surfboard riding has become so typical of Hawaii that
it is now one of the great features of the annual
February Mid-Paciﬁc Carnival and forms the subject
of color porters that are sent abroad to attract visitors.
|There are few more
charming spectacles even in this land of beauty than the daily troop
of surf-riders ﬂashing shoreward on the
crest of the long rollers.
Sunshine, laughter, the beautiful surroundings of sea, mountain, and palm-fringed shores combine in no small measure with the sport itself to give health, strength, and la joir de vivre to all who participate in the ancient pastime of the Hawaiian people.
