Surfing has been around (believe it or not) since the mid 1700’s. Probably before that, but this is the earliest recording. It was Captain James Cook’s third expedition to Hawaii. When they stopped at the western end of the island chain on their way from Tahiti to the northwest coast of North America.
Today surfing and surfboards are a traditional way of life in Hawaii..the ultimate ride is: The tube ride! And is considered to be the ultimate maneuver in surfing. As a wave breaks, if the conditions are ideal, the wave will break in an orderly line from the middle to the shoulder, enabling the experienced surfer to position him / her self actually inside the wave as it is breaking. This is known as a tube ride.
If you want to experience the Hawaiian Surfboard..the easy way is to wear it in the form of a surfboard print! Here’s a few from THE HULA HUT.
