Surf on the face of a wave with the Surfing Wallpapers. The cut-back or the re-entry? Only you can choose. Feel the power of huge waves right on your screen. Have fun and catch your wave. Surfing is a water sport in which athletes ride breaking waves into shore on a piece of specialized equipment called a surfboard. The sport has spawned a number of offshoots, including wake boarding, skim boarding, skateboarding, and windsurfing, among others. In addition to being a dynamic sport which can be practiced by people at all levels of ability, it is also associated with a specific surfing subculture which some people aim to emulate. Hawaii and Australia are particularly associated with this sport but good surf spots can be found all over the world, from the coast of Africa to the beaches of Japan.
The origins of this water sport are at least 500 years old, and possibly even older. Early Polynesian cultures developed the sport and brought it with them as they traveled throughout the Pacific, introducing it to missionaries and European explorers. Lest you think surfing is only for shaggy bums, Captain Cook himself wrote about it in Hawaii on his voyages there. Early missionaries tried to repress it, but the sport continued to be practiced, and in the 1920s, it exploded in popularity, thanks to the work of Duke Kahanamoku, a legend in this sport.
We can explain this water activity like an outlet for anxiety and stress, an inlet for nature and satisfaction, a connection between you and the ocean, your board acting as some semi-conductor of magnetic and gravitational forces pulsing from the center the sprawling expanse of nature itself. Sounds a bit fluffy, huh?
