Surfing, he’enalu, the Hawaiian word for surfing was first documented in explorer’s Capt James Cook’s log in 1778. When the missionaries arrived with their Christian beliefs , surfing was banned. It wasn’t until 1900’s with the missionary influence waning, that surfing was reborn. This was all due to the very handsome teenager by the name of Kahanamoku, or known quite simply as The Duke, The Father of Modern Surfing.
