Kālai Papa He‘e Nalu (Surfboard Carving)
with Pōhaku Stone
Every Thursday
11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Gallery Lawn in front of Hawaiian Hall
Free with paid Museum admission

In this presentation you’ll learn about the making of traditional Hawaiian surfboards like the alaia, a short board, the kīkoʻo, a popular long board, and an olo, a type of long board used by the aliʻi. You’ll see a solid wood slab given new life and purpose using traditional techniques. Kumu Stone will also explain the importance of shaping the curves of the nose, bottom, and rails of a board for wave-riding performance.

This program is offered in conjunction with the Mai Kinohi Mai: Surfing in Hawaiʻi exhibit in the Castle Memorial Building, where visitors can journey back to the days of old and see traditional Hawaiian surfboards from Bishop Museum’s collections.
