2. “Hawaiian Surfing: Traditions from the Past”
by John R. K. Clark
UH Press, 480 pp., $24

Hawaii beach expert Clark’s latest water-inspired read, out this month, chronicles the history of surfing in the Islands, narrated primarily by native Hawaiians who wrote for the Hawaiian-language newspapers of the 1800s. Clark (pictured, above) is a surfer, former lifeguard, retired deputy fire chief and author of seven of the most thoroughly researched books we’ve seen on Hawaii’s beaches. In Hawaiian Surfing, Clark brings his exhaustive research skills to the sport of surfing, from the history of Hawaii’s multitude of surf-riding sports to a English-Hawaiian dictionary of surfing terms and an index of Hawaii surf spots.
