Transcript of history of surfing

By: Mats Stromberg The History of Surfing Surfing comes from the Pacific Islands The earliest form of surfing happened in 1778 The first surfers were fishermen and other poor people Types and Sizes of Surfboards Longboard 9-10 FEET It is mainly used for beginners, and lazy people Big-Wave Board It is also called "The Big Gun", because of the speed it goes on monster waves. This board is used for professional surfers who have good control WHO IS THE BEST SURFER IN THE WORLD? Shortboard 5-8 ft It's the most difficult surfboard to ride, because it's very small and you fall down very quickly This board is used for competitions and professional surfing The Dangers Of Surfing Another danger is when you get pulled under a wave, because the wave keeps pulling you under Last but not least a danger could be if your leash is going around your neck and stops you from breathing Equipment What you need... -surfboard (for cold water)
-a wetsuit (for tropical water)
-board shorts
-shorty (wetsuit) What you may want... (for cold water)
-gloves
-hood
-wetsuit booties (for tropical water)
-rashguard Bethany Hamilton She got her arm bitten off by a shark but she still surfs She had to learn how to surf one armed, which is extremly difficult Her father connected a rope to her surfboard which helps Bethany to dive under waves She is an inspiration to many people today Surfing Legends Fishboard 6-9 ft (very short) You have to be good to ride it,
but it's easier to ride than the shortboard It's called fishboard, because of the tail The number one danger of surfing is getting pulled under a wave and getting cut by the corals Basic Steps to Surfing:) Step 1 : You have to want it. Really want it, because you want to give up first, your arms will hurt after the first session and you will have rash because of the wetsuit Step 2 : Choose a wave and make sure if you are the only one who want to catch it.
If there are other better surfers let them surf and wait for a free wave Step 3 : The wave is free and you want to catch it.
Turn around, if you are looking to the beach, it is all right Step 4 : Paddle as hard as possible and be sure that the hands are deep in the water and close to the rails (sides of the board) Step 5 : Stand up and surf :) November 21, 2012 Works Cited sports-information.org/surf thesurfingsite.com/surfboards.html shakadivers.com/pidgeon.htm ONLY FOR VERY BIG WAVES 8b History of surfing FAMOUS WAVES IN THE USA one of the
