Why did the Hawaiians invent surfing?
Having spent most of my life in Hawaii I am well aware that the Hawaiians take credit for surfing. But, Hawaiians did NOT invent surfing! Surfing is depicted on ceremonial vessels of the Viru Culture, 3000 years ago. On these vessels a man is shown standing aboard a little reed craft, surfing. This means that the earliest surfing in the world that has actual physical evidence took place in Peru. There is no anthropological or archaeological evidence for a Polynesian origin of surfing before the mid 1700s.
