Sport of Waikiki
By ALEXANDER HUME FORD,
President of the Hawaiian Outrigger
As a boy I used to sit In school Id
ling away my time building; air cas
tles oer the picture In my geography
book of Hawaiian men and women
(In Impossible attitudes) who, stand
ing on the tiniest of boards, stood
poised upon the crest of monster rol
lers. I longed for Hawaii and sighed
to read the brief statement that only
nntlve Hawallans of all tho people In
the world ever accomplished the art
of standlne on the waves.
Thirty )ears later 1 stood on the
beach at 'Waikiki and saw that my
1)0 hood dreams might be realized.
White men of all ages were racing in
upon the foam, and I, too, in time be-
are the accidents of surfing. It If
doubtless If an one has ever been
seriously Injured at this sport whkh
has come down to tho "liaole," from
the old Hawaiian KUlgq of Hawaii.
For several years past the sport of
surfing hns been on the decline, its
the vacant lots facing the bench at
Waikiki were taken up by prltate
ownership the small boy of Honolulu
was forced td give up his favorite
sport. It was on account of -this in
justice to the small boy thar the Out
rigger Club was i formed In April,
1908. Within n month of Its first
moving, thero was a membership of
200 .and an acre and a half of pro
perty facing the smf at Vulkl'l had
been secured. Native Rrns'-hmisiw,
the finest specimens on the islands
were purchased and moved lo the
property to be used at lounging

termed. The Intending surfer
launches his board by grasping It In
both hands by the edges,' so that it
balances, rushes down the slightly
sloping beach), and throws himself
upon the board as he casts It upon
the waters with a forward movement
that gives It a good start and sends
it beyond the first row ofillttlo break
ers, then begins that constant, stea
dy, windmill movement of tho arms,
tho bands acting as paddles, and the
six- or seven-foot plank of light woorli
swiftly glides out to sen. To tho be
ginner the exerclso soon tics tb ex
haustion, tho neck and back' ache,
and the points of the ribs that touch
tho board seem to cut through the
flesh. Perseerance, however, over
comes all obstacles, and after a few
days new muscle is developed and the
stiffness Is forgotten.
Out In the deep surf, the board goes
outward under the waes, a diving
tip being given the board Just as It
bucks each onrushlng breaker. Once
out where the waves foam, the surfer
either sits on his board, which, of
com bo, sinks until only an Inch or
so of tho tip Is above water, and
watts for THE wave; several may
pass; then afar off he notices tho one
ho wants; it is coming onward a
great green roller with a rldga of
almost Imperceptible spray along Its
ontiro length; this Is tho wave that
will curl and break to perfection,
then rush on for hundreds of jards a
Niagara of foam. The line of surfers
picpare, as tho base of tho mountain
of water reaches them, there Is a
lgorous and doft paddling with all
tho strength that skill can put Into
trained arms and the strait Is made,
somo rise rapidly to tho'crcst of the
billow and sink behind It, they have
lost tho wave, others keep down In
the hollow Just beforo tho wall of
green. It breaks, and thesn fortu-.
nates are lost In the foam, rlso
through It, standing on their boaid,
n ro lifted to the top of the white
crest, and by skillful balancing, and
guiding their boards with their feet,
send them down In the bins until
once more they are in front of tho on-
Jrushlng mass of water. Some of tho

The Outrigger Canoe Club has been
organized solely to rovivo and popu
larize the Hawaiian water sports that
have made theso Islands famous tho
world oyer. The dues aro. but five
dollars a jear which entitles members
to all privileges Including- the- use of
ranoes, Burfboards and ' the bath
rooms. It s hoped by the officers of
the club that neither the boys or girls
pt Hawaii, will cer permit the club
to languish or the art of surfing to
become a lost art. Only In Hawaii
do, adults and children stand upon
tbo'crests of the waves, like gods, so
let the world come to Hawaii where
this may be done, and may there nl

MAN OF THE HOUR .
There will be no performances of
tho "Ulan of tho Hour" cither tomor
row or Tuesday nights. It was
found necessary to maku this an
nouncement on account of tho fact
that tho house last night was hardly
largo enough to pay tho oxpenses of
tht production. Neither the sailors
or tho local people seemed to bo de
sirous of attending tho show and It
was thought best to call a halt at
