Most experts and sources agree that surfing was born in Polynesia in the 15th century with the Hawaiian Kings, who challenged the sea and its elements on long wooden boards to prove their power and superiority.
In the beginning, it was simple boards carved in the trunk of a tree or the bark of coconut trees. The surfboards are composed of the best materials to ally lightness, balance, and class.
In this archipelago located in the South Pacific, riding the waves has become more than a sport. Surfing has become a defining practice for the organization of the community on the islands.
At the end of the 18th century (1778), James Cook dropped anchor in Kealakekua Bay in the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii). He saw natives riding the waves on long wooden planks. According to a ritual, these Papa-he-Nalu boards are carved in a tree trunk.
The most important thing in surfing is to be patient, not to want to catch the first wave or the biggest one to show off.
Indeed, choose the wave that corresponds to you, the one that doesn’t scare you, but on which you will feel the best, you will enjoy the best.
After seeing the wave that best suits him, he paddles (as in crawl) to acquire enough speed for the tide to take him away.
From that moment on, when he feels the wave taking him away, the surfer must paddle as fast as possible.
Once you have reached your maximum speed, you must lean on your arms to straighten yourself forward in the right direction. As you straighten your chest, your left leg (for a regular*) or right leg (for a goofy**) comes to the front, and your right (or left) leg to the back of the board.
At this moment, the surfer adopts a flexed posture on his legs. Once upright, the arms act as a balance to maintain balance and help change direction, while the legs act as a shock absorber and balancer.
This combination of things makes this sport of balance, glide, and class worthy of SURF.
Therefore, the practice of surfing is differentiated into two major categories of boards, the longboards, and the shortboards.
