No fun to be had on the Sabbath, 1874.

[Found under: “Nu Hou Kuloko.”]

—On this past Sunday, some haole boys went to surf at the surf spot of Uo at noon of that day, and some people told the sheriff to arrest them; he responded that it was fine, and that there was no law against surfing on Sunday. We believe that if surfing is a pleasurable activity, then there is indeed a law against it.

(Kuokoa, 7/18/1874, p. 2)
