Additional Details:
The Hawaiian canoes are hollowed out of a single tree having strips of hard wood sewed on the upper edge of the canoe on each side, closing over the top at both stem and stern. The canoes are steadied by an outrigger or Ama, a slender log of light wood parallel to the canoe and fastened to it by crude cross-pieces or Iako. Canoe surf riding is unsurpassed in the Hawaiian Islands. Tourists are taken in these surf riding canoes at Waikiki near Honolulu.
