The Island Curio Co. vintage Hawaiian Territory post cards from before 1940, have become very collectible and it's easy to see why. Every one seems to have great historical value as well as scenes of another time, usually in great colors. This card shows "Sport in the Surf, Honolulu, T.H.," canoe surfers riding a wave alongside several board surfers. This is very early surfing action. Far in the distance, waiting for the next wave, you can see another group getting ready. The only issue with this card is the apparent foxing on the reverse. It is other wise free of any other damage or wear of any kind and would be in mint condition. It was in an album, unseen for many years and a fantastic addition to any collection, whether the subject be the Territory of Hawaii, early surfing, or vintage post card collecting, this is a nice card.
