Surfing in Hawaii can be traced back to the 4th century AD.
It was during this period when Polynesians made their way to the Hawaiian Islands from Tahiti and the Marquesas, bringing with them the custom of playing in the surf on Paipo or belly boards. By the late 1700s, riding the waves on long hardwood surfboards had become a part of the ancient Hawaiian culture, owing also to the fact that the Hawaiian Islands are surrounded with waters so inviting for surfing. At present, surfing is so ingrained in the Hawaiian culture that it is now a famous water activity, well-known sport, and, of course, a must-try for tourists visiting the Island! Thus, if you’re travelling to Hawaii, particularly in Maui, do not miss the opportunity to ride the waves!
