My geography had merely lied about Hawaii, as many an otherwisp good book has done sinco. Surfboard riding is an art easy of accomplishment to tho few and aifllcult to the many. It is at its best when the rollers aro long in forming, slow to break, and, after they do, run for a great distance over a flat, level bottom, such as the coral beds at Waiklkl, which is per- haps the all-year-round Ideal surf- boarding bit of water in tho whole or "nalu nul," and a long noo'' as (tne overhead windmill Stroke (thift takes you out Is termed. The intend- 1 lng surfer launches his board by grasp I lng it in both hands by the edges, su I .'that It balances! rushes down tho ' slightly sloping beach nnd throws hlm 1 self upon the board ns ho casts It up on the waters with a forward move ment that gives It a good start and sends It bqyond the first row of nttio 1 breakers. Then begins that constant, j stcauy, windmill movement o(f tho arms, the hands acting as paddles, and tho six or seven-foot plank of light wood swiftly glides out to sea. To tho beginner the exercise soon tires to exhaustion; tho neck and back acne, and tho Dolnt8 of tno rlus that touch tho board seem to cut through the . Perseverance, however, over comes nil obstacles, and after a tew days new muscle is developed and the stiffness is forgptten. Out in the deep s'urr, tho board goes outward under the waves ,a diving tip being given the board just as It bucks each onrushlng breaker. Onto out whore the waves foam, the surfer sits on his board, which, of course, unU1 oa an ln or so of tho tip is above water, and waits for the wave. Several may pass, tnen atar 0lI ne noticc3 the one he wants. It is comng onward, a great green roller wlth a rlde -of almost lmnerceDtlble spray along Its entire length. This is the wave that will curl and break to perfection, then rush on for hundreds of yards a Niagara of foam. The line of surfers prepares, and as the base of the mountain of water reaches them, there is vigorous and deft pad dling with all the strength that skill can put into trained arms, and tho great effort Is made.

I For several years past the sport or surfing has been on the decline, for as the vacant lots facing the beach at. Waiklkl were taken up by private own ership, the small boy of Honolulu was forced to give up his favorite Bport. It was on account of this injustice to the small boy that the Outrigger Club was I formed in April, 1908. Within a month 1 of this first moving, there was a mem- ' rt .', fllQ arr u,lww had been secured.

Bath rooms were added for the free use of members, room for stowing surf boards, sheds for the canoes and lock ers for tho paddles were provided. New members were taught to ride standing upon the surf-board, and so popular became the revival of the oia Hawaiian sport that even the ladies began to take a deep interest In it. A number of young girls havo learnea to stand upon their boards, riding the- waves, and together with their mothers i and old sisters have organized an au- xiliary club, which has Its own club- mas-"house on a separate piece of property, donated by the Seaside Hotel manage- ment.
