Surfing

Did you know that surfing originated in the Polynesian islands many years ago? Surfing became part of the culture of California early in the 20th Century, when the eccentric rich landowner Henry Huntington saw Hawaiian boys surfing while on holiday and decided to hire one of the boys to show off his skills at Redondo Beach, to entice people to the area!

20th June has been designated International Surfing Day. If you can't head to the beach and join in the fun, you can at least enjoy some of our fun surfing printables from the collection below!
