As early as 1778, the British explorer, Captain Cook J., had seen this activity in the Hawaii archipelago. Surfing came to some countries in Europe and America after 1908. After 1960, to asia. In the last twenty years, surfing has developed a lot. North America, Peru, Hawaii, South Africa and the eastern coast of Australia have held large surfing competitions.


Surfing is driven by waves, and on the seashore of waves.  The height of the waves is about 1 meters, the lowest is less than 30 centimeters. The Hawaii islands have waves that are suitable for surfing all the year round, especially in winter or spring. The waves come from the North Pacific. The waves are 4 meters high, which can make the athletes glide more than 800 meters. So the Hawaii islands have been the center of surfing around the world.


The originally used surfboard is about 5 meters long and weighs 50~60 kg. After the Second World War, the foam board appeared, and the shape of the plate was improved. The surfboard is 1.5~2.7 meters long, about 60 centimeters wide and 7~10 cm thick. The plate is light and flat, the front and rear ends are slightly narrow, and there is a stable caudal fin below. In order to increase the friction force, a waxy outer membrane is coated on the surface of the board. The weight of all surfboard is only 11~26 kg.


Humpback whales have some wings in front of the corrugated structure, which helped this huge monster more elegant smoothly in front of the water. This structure can help to reduce the resistance, and help the humpback "seize" flow, to ensure that it even has a huge body, still can quick action. Inspired by this, Fluid Earth produces a surf board with a wavy front end
