Surfboard-Shaping Presentation
With Kumu Pōhaku Stone
Saturday, January 4, 18, 25 & February 8, 2020
10:00 am–2:00 pm
Flanders Lawn
This program is free with paid Museum admission.

Come and learn about the making of traditional Hawaiian surfboards like the alaia, a short board, the kī koʻo, a popular long board, and an olo, a type of long board used by the aliʻi. See a solid wood slab given new life and purpose in the way traditional surfboards were. Kumu Stone will explain the importance of shaping the curves of the nose, bottom, and rails of a board for wave-riding performance.

You’ll also have the opportunity to journey back to the days of old and see traditional Hawaiian surfboards from Bishop Museum’s collections in the Mai Kinohi Mai: Surfing in Hawaiʻi exhibit in the Castle Memorial Building.

The Bishop Museum Living Culture presentations and workshops are supported by Hawai‘i Tourism through the Kūkulu Ola Program.
