The origins of Surfing can be traced back to the 1700’s when the Polynesian people all around the Pacific enjoyed using heavy timber planks to catch waves for fun and social standing. Surfing as we know it today was popularised in the 50’s and more so in the 60’s with Surf Culture making a mark on society in general.
