The North Shore Chamber of Commerce’s Historic Preservation Committee is pleased to present the second illustrated lecture in its Historical Lecture Series by author and historian John Clark on his pioneering work, “Hawaiian Surfing, Traditions from the Past.” This event is made possible through the generous sponsorship of Van’s Triple Crown of Surfing.

This groundbreaking book is a history of the traditional sport narrated primarily by native Hawaiians who wrote for the Hawaiian language newspapers of the 1800s. Clark conducted extensive research into the emerging online archive of Hawaiian language and history called Ho`olaupa`i for references about traditional Hawaiian surfing. He collaborated with Keao NeSmith, one of Hawaii’s most respected Hawaiian language educators, to carefully translate these references providing an exceptional compendium of cultural knowledge about the sport in ancient Hawaii. The book will be available for purchase at the event.
