A Century of Surf is being put together by writer and Hawthorn fan Tim Baker to mark the centenary of the visit by the great Hawaiian surfer and swimmer Duke Kahanamoku to our shores in 1914.
Tim is trying to cast his net as widely as possible so looking for leads, photos, suggestions, ideas on previously unsung, overlooked, misreported aspects of surfing history. People can visit the Facebook page:
or email me at email@example.com
If you would like to contribute, participate, comment, etc. please contact Tim, or even post something here at the Almanac site and we’ll then shoot it off to Tim.
