The most popular of Hawaiian pastimes is surf swimming or heenalu. In this sport the swimmers use a light board made of koa or wiliwill. With these they swim out to sea, diving under the rollers which they meet, until they reach the outher line of breakers; then, lying flat on their boards, they balance themselves upon the forward slope of the highest breaker, and ride with the speed of a race horse toward the shore. Surf board swimming can be seen at Waikiki near Honolulu.
