Surfing is the most primal and elemental of all water sports. It is among the most thrilling, most difficult, and, if you ask the surfers themselves, most spiritual of all sports. It is also one of the oldest.
Surfing is one of the few sports to boast both an ancient and a modern history. That, combined with the details, techniques, and culture of the sport itself, makes surfing a fascinating activity that millions of people do every day all over the world, and millions more long to try for themselves.
