The 1910s

Introduction to the Chapter on Surfing the 1910s

Aloha and welcome to this introduction to the LEGENDARY SURFERS chapter on the surfing decade of the 1910's.

The period 1910-1919 was the first full decade following surfing's revival at Waikiki in the first years of the Twentieth Century. In many ways, we know less about the 1910's than we do the first decade of surfing's resurgence because, once the revival was underway, the growth of surfing became less dramatic, but more far-reaching. This chapter covers the events and the surfers of that decade in the kind of depth that cannot be found anywhere else other than through the LEGENDARY SURFERS collection.

Chapter 1 of Volume 2, "The 1910's" is 14,784 words long and comprises 42 pages in length, including several pages of footnotes. It is formatted in Adobe Acrobat's free Portable Document Format (PDF) for easy viewing and printing from your computer.
