In the Australian summer of 1915, Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku demonstrated surfing at Freshwater Beach, New South Wales (Australia).

Whilst staying at Freshwater Beach, Duke made a solid board made from local timbers - introducing to Australia the craft of the ancient Hawaiian kings - surfboard riding.

answeractually the aborigines used surf boards long before the white man ever went to Australia so please don't try to tell the world that surfing is another American invention

The wind has a lare fetch (the distance that it blows over) this means that more energy is transferred to the sea and therefore the waves are bigger and better for surfing.

No. Monkeys do not come from Australia as they are not native to the continent.
