Vintage Hawaiian Surf Auction


Your chance to score surf history.

Seems like Hawaiian history is the name of the game this month. Not only did Bob Pearson shape ancient redwood surfboard replicas but now there is a vintage surfing auction in Honolulu. Items for everyones price point are available from surfboards to movie posters to nautical history. Randy Rarick states “We’ve got one from Rainbow Bridge filming on Maui. Jimi Hendrix was actually there with it. One of the boards. One of them even hid a little contraband in one of the boards.”  In particular, theres a few beautiful Lightening Bolt surfboards and Clark Foam blanks.

If you’re interested in going to the auction and picking up some history (photograph your score, post it up on Facebook and tag us!) you can find it at McClains Ultimate Attic at 780 South Beretania Street and begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

HONOLULU —It’s the first major surf-centric auction in Hawaii in four years. On Saturday, more than 300 memorabilia items spanning 50 years of surfing history will be up for bid.

Randy Rarick’s legacy in surf spans a half century. He’s shaped more than 1,200 boards in his life. Now you can shape your own collection with some of his handiwork.

“We’ve got boards from the 40s, the 50s, the 60s even into the early 80s. So, literally more than 50 years of surfboard equipment,” said Rarick.
