Surfboards are typically made of fiberglass or wood coated with fiberglass or plastics. Surfboards top layer or finish is highly waxed and polished to reduce drag and improve performance.
Surfboards were made so that people could enjoy water in a different way. Surfboards originated in Hawaii and were made out of wood. The surfboard that is used today is lighter and allows a person to ride a wave much easier.
Hobie Alter and Grubby Clark built the first fiberglass surfboards in 1958.
The first surfboards were constructed out of a light wood. Possibly made out of Balsa, a light wood that was also used for fishing boats.
Surfboards were made for everyone. When Captain Cook, observed native Hawaiians surfing, all classes of people surfed from the chief to the commoner.
Hobie Alter made some of the first foam surfboards, and he used polyurethane foam. But basically, any rigid plastic foam that won't melt when you put resin on it will work.
in 1940 i think
the science of surfboards is forces and gravity
Surfing was observed by Captain James Cook, when he arrived in Hawaii. Nobility rode on longer boards, and commoners rode on surfboards that were 10 to 12 feet long.
surfboards have curves to stop them form nose diving (when the front of the surfboards goes into the water) the curve is called a rocker.
