Hollow Hawaiian Surfboard, circa 1935


Robert Wengert donated this amazing circa 1935, 10’ Hawaiian surfboard. It’s pretty unique in shape and in the fact that it’s a redwood board that’s been hollowed out, reinforced with ribs and then skinned over with plywood, weighing 47 lbs. The fin was probably added when the hollowing-out took place. Painted on the deck is “Yokwe-Yok” with “Erik Auri” below that (possibly the previous board owner’s name). This board will become part of our timeline on the evolution of board design display. Photo: Linda Michael

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
