Mai Kinohi Mai: Surfing in Hawaii at the Bishop Museum
On view December 14, 2019 - May 3, 2020
In 1778, when westerners first encountered Hawaiians, surfing had already reached a pinnacle of development in Hawai‘i. It was a science, a sport, and a part of the culture. This is as true today as it was then. Through the unique research and collections of Bishop Museum in partnership with the local surfing community, this exhibit will explore surfing’s connection with the past and its ongoing technical and cultural developments, which make the sport an international phenomenon today.
