From the June 4th Star Advertiser Feature “5 Things We Love“
5. This spring, before making their first trip to Paris, a friend bought Inter-island Surf’s lightweight jacket bearing a cute retro logo for her other half. (Having heard that Parisians can snub Americans, they wanted to declare Hawaii citizenship.) In the Kapahulu store, friendly owner Barry Morrison sells new and vintage apparel and boards.
I dig the women’s denim jackets ($110) and shorts ($30 to $40), and my friends report the jacket ($149 in cotton or board-short nylon) was a hit abroad and is making a splash at home.
Inter-island Surf Shop is located at 451 Kapahulu Ave.; call 732-8882 or visit inter-island.com.

The plank, however, is right at home here, because it’s a longboard with a backstory.
Peter Noble, a former Monterey High School teacher and coach, first learned about the board from former Carmel mayor Ken White, another former MHS teacher-coach, who’d seen it for sale outside of a Carmel home. Noble went to meet the board owner, who was in his mid-80s, and heard the origin story. “The guy was stationed at Pearl Harbor and he and his buddy bought the board for $20 from a local,” Noble recalls. “The board was surfed last on Dec. 6, 1941. They bombed Pearl Harbor the next day.”
