Honolulu's Bishop Museum will introduce an exhibit this December dedicated to the sport invented by Polynesians and popularized in Hawaii, surfing. 

Mai Kinohi Mai: Surfing in Hawaii runs from Dec. 14, 2019, to May 3, 2020, in the Castle Memorial Building, and is a collaboration between the museum and the local surfing community. 

The exhibit explores the continuing cultural and technological changes within surfing, and displays include traditional Hawaiian surfboards from the first wave riders alongside

boards belonging to legendary surfers like Duke Kahanamoku. Interactive stations provide insight on surf forecasting while archival photos and rare memorabilia offer a window into the history and development of the sport.
