Inter-Island Surf Shop Featured in Hawaii Luxury Magazine

Racked surfboards, vintage photography and mid-century Hawai‘i memorabilia line the walls (and much of the ceiling) at Inter-Island Surf Shop in Honolulu. To step through the store’s red-and-black front doors on Kapahulu Avenue is to go back in time to an earlier age of surfing, of tourists brought over on Matson cruise ships to the just built Royal Hawaiian Hotel in the 1920s and 30s; small paipo bodyboards and the venturesome beach boys of Waikiki in the 1950s; and the resurgence of Hawaiian hula, music, culture and language during the second Hawaiian renaissance in the 1970s.

5 Things We Love

From the June 4th Star Advertiser Feature “5 Things We Love

— Mindy Pennybacker, Star-Advertiser

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
