Surf History

"The best surfer is the one having the most fun." - Duke Kahanamoku

Did you know that surfing is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, recorded pastimes that still exists today? The roots of surfing can be dated back to the 12th Century and span around the globe. Modern day surfing developed as the result of decades of traditions, innovations, voyages, and even controversies.

In our surf history course, we cover everything from the original founding of surfing, through the ways that surfing has culturally interacted with society over the years, and even the development of competitive and professional surfing.

We offer the history section completely free because we believe that in order to have an understanding of surfing, you need to understand the rich history behind the art of riding waves.
