Surfing is a surface water sport in which the surfer rides a surfboard on the crest and face of a wave. Surfing was originated by the oceanic culture island of Polynesia and was first discovered by Captain Cook in 1778. The first major surf contest was held all the way back in 1928 in California. The world record for the longest ride is 3 hours 55 minutes by surfer Gary Saavedra in 2011 when he rode the wake of a speed boat.
