Surf Lessons

Surfing was first documented in Hawaii by the crew of Captain James Cook on the ship HMS Endeavor in 1769. It was a sport of nobility in the Polynesian culture and the Europeans who witnessed this water sport noted that the ‘natives’ were using planks of wood and single hull canoes to propel themselves down the face of the wave.
