Review
In a book review, titled  "The Sandwich Islands Today," extracts from Rev. Henry T. Cheever's
Life in the Sandwich Islands (1851) included the book's surf riding text and illustration, pages 298-299.
It was the first time a surfing illustration was published in a magazine.
The surf riding passages are preceded by:

"The work abounds with interesting details of Island Life, and we regret that our limitations will not let us enrich the International with more liberal extracts.
We can at present add but the following patragraphs on a sport for which the islanders have been celebrated since the days of Cook:"

Alexander Hume Ford was an enthusiastic promoter of surfriding and is best known as the instigator of the Outrigger Canoe Club at Waikiki in 1908, probably on his return from Australia.
The object of the club was to revive the canoe and board surfriding as practised in ancient Hawaii.
He wrote more than half a dozen articles on surfriding between 1908 and 1926, mostly published in Hawaiian, but some mainland US, magazines.

Caption:
"RIDING THE SURF AT HONOLULU, HAWAII
Walking a tightrope stretched on top a speeding express train might afford some exhilaration of Hawaii's distinctive sport.
Here, again, geography molded the national pastime; for the conformation of the ocean bed along the island coast creates the swells that make this sport popular.
The picture illustrates only one position of the native rider, who lies prone, sits, and even stands on his head on his super-canoe."

Jim Bailey was a legendary longboarder and friend of Doc Ball et. al. 
He was a life guard at Hermosa Beach California. 
I have another photo of him with his dog on the front of his board if you would like a copy.  My aunt, his wife, is still alive in Hemet California, but alas, Doc passed away last year.

Man behind Mays is paddling out

My whole life is this wave.
I drop in, set the thing up and, behind me, all this stuff goes over my back; the screaming parents, teachers, police, priests, politicians—they're all going over the falls headfirst into the reef.
And when it starts to close out, I pull out the back pick up another wave, and do the same goddamn thing.

A pattern of islands / Arthur Grimble Grimble, Arthur Francis Sir, 1888-1956
http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/6759303
"A Pattern of Islands" is the funny, charming and self-deprecating adventure story of a young man in the Pacific. Beyond the hilarious and frightening adventure stories, "A Pattern of Islands" is also a true testament to the life of these Pacific islanders. Grimble collected stories from the last generation who could remember the full glory of the old pagan ways. Like discovering a treasure chest of fables, which were once true, it is full of stories of magic, dances and legends, rituals, spells and a way of life that have now disappeared from this world except within the covers of this book.
