The Surf exists, probably more than 1000 years and is one of the oldest practices of mankind. Glide over the waves is possibly one of the oldest sports in the history of mankind. However, the Surf is rediscovered by the first English sailors visiting Polynesia in the eighteenth century, it does not appear as a sport until the late nineteenth century and became popular in the second decade of the twentieth century. The rest of the disciplines associated with this water sport are appearing over time as a logical evolution of surfing. You can find more info on the History of Surfing in TotalSurfCamp.

Surfing was started by the Hawaiians as a tribal activity. Chiefs surfed together as a sign of peace and surfing was also used the way it is today: as a mating offering. Lots of information is available about the start of surfing, just Google "surfing history" or "timeline of surfing."
