Surfers are deeply connected with that giant mass of saltwater. Their life and soul intertwine with the rumbling waves.
The riding of waves has likely existed since humans began swimming in the ocean. Archaeological evidence suggests that ancient cultures of Peru surfed on reed watercraft for fishing and recreation up to five thousand years ago. Cave paintings from the 12th Century show people riding on waves.
Other research suggests that surfing dates back to the ancient Polynesian cultures that existed long ago. According to many myths, the chief of a tribe was the man who could surf the best.
The exact origins of surfing are not certain. The first written heritage about the history of surfing was found in James Cook’s diary.
Polynesians brought surfing to Hawaii and the sport went viral.
