This is a 1982 Allen B. Wright Jr. surfing map of Hawaii. The map depicts all eight islands in the archipelago with Nihau on the left and Hawaii on the right. Each island is labeled, as are cities and towns on each island, except for Kahoolawe and Nihau. Roads are illustrated as well, including ungraded dirt or jeep trails. Most importantly for this piece is that myriad surfing locales are identified along the coast of the islands, with short descriptions of a large number of them appearing in the lower left corner as well as the upper right, where descriptions of the beaches on the island of Hawaii are situated. The whole is surrounded by a border featuring color photographs of swells and surfers. Four inset maps occupy the four corners and illustrate Hanalei Bay on Kauai, Waikiki and the North Shore on Oahu, and Honolua Bay on Maui. The surfing at Hanalei Bay is the best on Kauai, while Honolua Bay, if the surf is right, can provide some of the best surfing around. Waimea Bay and Pipeline on the North Shore, however, are world famous, while the North Shore has some of the world's finest beaches and bays.
