Lecture: Surfing in Hawai‘i: 1778-1930
Saturday Jul 21 04:00 PM
Doris Duke Theatre
About the Lecture:
Surf historian Timothy Tovar DeLaVega shares his remarkable archive collection of rare graphic images of surfing—from the very first known etchings to black and white photography of the early 20th century.
With two authoritative books—Surfing in Hawai’i 1778-1930 and 200 Years of Surfing Literature, An Annotated Bibliography—under his belt, Tim is respected not only for his meticulous research but also his unalloyed enthusiasm for Hawai‘i's "Sport of Kings."
Joining Tim will be a select group of renowned watermen and women who will read excerpts from classic literature on surfing, ranging from ancient Hawaiian chants to a 1920 surfing poem, accompanied by a slide show presentation.
