Waves of Resistance: Surfing and History in Twentieth-Century Hawaii
The act of riding waves is profoundly connected to the history of Hawaii.
However, when the United States took over the territory, many Native Hawaiians were forced to find refuge and peace in the surf.
"Waves of Resistance" is a curated collection of historical information, newspaper articles, and interviews that open a new chapter in the relationship between colonialism and surfing in the Hawaiian Islands.
The influence of Duke Kahanamoku and Eddie Aikau, the foundation of the Outrigger Canoe Club and Hui Nalu, the impact of surfing in tourism, and the racial issue are all subject of investigation in this book.
