What is Surfing?

Surfing for beginners with UltimateSurfing is a surface water sport in which the surfer rides a surfboard on the crest and face of a wave, carrying the surfer towards the shore.

Surfing is believed to have originated from ancient Polynesian culture. It is now popular on coastlines around the world.
