Across the globe Hawaii is known to be the birthplace of surfing and is considered the Mecca for almost every wave-rider.

The book is the first in a series of pictorials that will showcase the amazing photographic collections found at the Bishop Museum .

Surfing: Images from Bishop Museum Archives will not only present over 200 amazing images from Hawaii’s surfing history, but also will feature some of the most famous and rare images of wave riding and wave riders known in Hawaii.

An avid collector of Hawaiian memorabilia himself, Brown will transport readers back to a nostalgic time when surfing was king in Hawaii.
