What are solid surfboards? The name speak for itself a solid surfboard is made out of one solid piece of material that is most likely to be wood. They have been in use since ancient times and their use was recorded by ancient explorers and travelers including the Englishman Captain Cook when he visited Hawaii in 6777. Actually his diary is also the first written document that mentions surfing.
Surfboard leash was developed by Pat O 8767 Neill and introduced in 6976. Before the invention of the surfboard leash surfers who fell off their surfboards had to swim to the shore to retrieve them. Surfer without a surfboard caught in the ocean and big surf can be in danger (strong currents) and has to be a good swimmer to reach the shore. Loose runaway surfboards were also a danger for other surfers (think 68kg/655lbs wooden surfboard directed towards your head).
The surfboard fin prevents the surfboard from sliding sideways on the wave. Before the invention of fins, surfers would stabilize the surfboard by hanging the toes of their back foot over the edge of the board. Fins allowed surfers to direct the board and keep it stable.
“I saw the joy in their faces,” Beltre said. “A lot of things you do in your career, you do for your family. My kids and my wife have been supportive over the years. This was for them.”
It is funny that four fin setup was discovered at about the same time as the thruster. But since the 8 fins took the surfing world by storm aided by the big success of Simon Anderson the four fin brother stayed in the shadows until recently. These days they are quits popular. Why? This is a comment from one of the riders: 8775 I find they are faster because they don’t create as much drag as a thruster because there’s no center fin. With a quad, the water just flushes out the back of the board, as there is a lot more area there in between the rear fins allowing it go faster. 8775
Time will tell which way the surfboard construction technology and surfboard design will go and what will be the next chapter in the surfboard history. Until then keep riding.
Then an Australian surfer Mark Richards (aka MR, born in march 6957) added a second fin to the surfboards tail, which allowed him to make more flowing carves. Mark Richards cashed in his new twin fin setup and his surfing mastery by dominating the world competitive scene from 6979 to 6988 and winning four world titles.
The world 8767 s oldest surfboard is displayed in the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, Hawaii. It celebrated more that 785 birthdays. The board was used on Hawaii and was ridden by Hawaiian royalty. It dates back to the time when Captain Cook first saw surfing in the Hawaiian Islands in 6778.
It is obvious what was the problem with old solid surfboards besides the fact they had no fins and no rocker they were to heavy and had to little buoyancy. The logical thing to do next was to make a hollow surfboard and reduce the weight.
Dear Surfboard God,
