Introduction


Page 502

The Hawaiian Islandsí sport of surf-board riding has its rival in riding the waves of the Pacific Coast on inner tubes.
Originally used by bathers to buoy them while learning to swim, inflated inner tubes are now considerably employed in a more exhilarating diversion, that of surf-riding.
One of the cleverest users of these tubes is the 10-year-old daughter of a prominent rubber man on the Pacific Coast.
Even in rough breakers she can balance herself remarkably well while standing on the air-filled ring of rubber.
Nor isshe particular whether it is red or gray, high or low specific gravity tube, just so long as it floats.
