Circa 1900 Hawaiian Ala’ia Wood Surfboard 5’ 9"
From turn-of-the-century, 1891-1900, this astonishing find is a true historic relic, one of the best examples of a pre Duke Kahanamoku influenced board you’re likely to find. All original extraordinary condition for a board of 100+ years of age.
A true Hawaiian Ala’ia with shaped rolled bottom, rails roll up from bottom. Rescued from a demolition in Waikiki many years ago, a very rare and fine example of a late 1800s early 1900s plank. Very few of these exist outside of museums.
See the attached photos that show ancient boards held at the Bishop Museum Honolulu, Hawaii. The Alaia boards are located in front of the huge 16’ Olo board.
