HAWAIIAN SURFING GUIDE (1965)

You are looking at an extremely rare Hawaiian Surfing Guide from December 1965. This one includes a Makaha International Surfing Championships Program, along with a guide to 73 surf spots of Oahu. This is a true grandfather of surfing magazines, according to Tim DeLaVega, author of the Surfing Collectibles Guide. "The Makaha Championship established the concept of surf photos and surfing stories along with information on the events, setting the standard for all the surf magazines that were to follow." This copy is in remarkably good condition for its age. Cover and spine show light wear only. No pulling at staples. Some minor staple rust, along with some minor stains on back cover. Complete and intact with no torn or missing pages and no cutouts. We rate this a Betty, or 80 percent of mint. Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board. 44 pages. Click Here for a closer view.
