The Three Amigos now at the Surfing Heritage Foundation

Three new surfboards are on display in our hallway at the Surfing Heritage Foundation. The boards, known as the Three Amigos, were donated by Founding and Sustaining Partners, Nick & Terri Bacica. They were recently delivered by Wingnut on one of his southward journeys. The new boards are replicas of surf legends; "Lorrin 'Whitey' Harrison's, Doc Ball's and Leroy Grannis' boards that they used to ride. Greg Noll (himself a pioneer as well) recreated these incredible surfboards. "Lorrin 'Whitey' Harrison's surfboard was the most advanced," says Greg. "Fairly narrow in the stern with a vee-bottom tail for riding more critical waves." Leroy Grannis' board was made of solid merch redwood (from the outer bark ring). Doc Ball's board was carved from a solid slab of redwood with a copper Hawaiian shield mounted on the deck. (Excerpted from Greg Noll, the Art of the Surfboard ) Come by and enjoy these great new additions.See More

The Duke Kahanamoku Surfing Reserve

Governor Linda Lingle today issued an executive order to establish surfing reserves at two of Hawai‘i’s most important and well-known surfing areas. The executive order “acknowledges the cultural, sports and historic significance of important surf sites in Hawai‘i,” and “raises public awareness about the importance of protecting, nourishing and developing Hawai‘i’s world famous surf sites."
The Governor’s order establishes the Duke Kahanamoku Surfing Reserve, which includes surf breaks bounded by the Ala Wai and the Waikīkī War Memorial Natatorium, as well as the North Shore Surfing Reserve, which includes surf breaks from Ali‘i Beach in Hale‘iwa to Sunset Beach. Both surf reserves are located off the waters of O‘ahu.
