Surfing is one of the oldest sports on earth. Over three thousand years ago fisherman created the act of riding waves on a wooden board to get their catch to shore fast and safe in Western Polynesia.

Over time this method for everyday work evoved into a favorite pastime and revolutionized the art of surfing. During the 15th century royalty and the Sandwich Isle people were reported to enjoy a sport called "he'enalu" which means wave sliding in old Hawaiian. "He'e" means to change from solid to a liquid form and "nalu" represents the surfing motion of the wave.

The first Polynesians to come to Hawaii were skilled in the basixs of wave riding but became more evolved after a couple hundred years on the great Island.
