From the curators notes:

Surfers off Mye Lee Beach, Honolulu. Hawaii.

Sub title - 'Rough sport: wonders on surf boards'.  

Run time – 47 seconds.

LS surfer rushing into sea with balloons. LS surfers on boards. MS surfers standing on boards racing out to sea. 

MS surfer disappearing beneath huge wave. MS surfer being carried in on huge wave. 

LS huge waves bearing down on surfers. MS two surfers on crest of wave. LS surfers speeding towards land. MS surfer speeding along. MS huge wave upsetting surfer from board. 

* Cataloguer's note: American commentary.

Watch “These pounding breakers as noisy as a four-motored airplane” here
