Event Details

Honolulu’s Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum presents a new, original exhibit that explores surfing’s history. Mai Kinohi Mai or “from the beginning,” documents how surfing in Hawaii reached a pinnacle of cultural development, and how the sport spread from Hawaii to the rest of the world.

On exhibit will be some of the oldest surviving traditional Hawaiian surfboards and include boards belonging to legendary surfers, including Queen of Makaha, Rell Sunn, and Duke Kahanamoku, who is largely credited for popularizing the sport internationally.

Three-time women’s world champion Carissa Moore, who recently earned a spot on the first U.S. Olympic women’s surfing team will be on display as will a board belonging to 2016 and 2017 men’s world champion John John Florence.

Other rare memorabilia and historic photos exhibits tell the story of surfing from its roots in traditional Hawaiian culture to its expansion as a worldwide phenomenon.

Tickets range from $10.95 to $24.95. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Closed on Christmas Day.
