A Little Hawaii Surfing Story

The history of surfing in Hawaii dates back to the 4th century A.D. when the Polynesians entered the Hawaiian island and introduced most of their customs including ancient surfing. It was also in records that surfing on longboards while standing started in Hawaii. Surfing is part of the Hawaiian culture.

Most of the Hawaiian chants contain the use of surfing boards. Chants were also made to the gods to make big waves and also courage for men who are to ride on those waves. Although surfing was mainly enjoyed by the noble, the sport was almost extinct until it was revived in 1907 by 4 surfing lovers (one Hawaiian; George Freeth and three American; Jack London, Alexander Ford Hume and Ford). Jack London wrote about surfing and the rest was history.
