Emerged in early 1700s, the Surfing Travel Culture has spread worldwide wherever waves adequate for surfing.

For a surfer, it's never-ending. There's always some wave you want to surf.
– Kelly Slater

Surfing Travel Culture Defined:

Surfing is a surface water sport in which the wave rider, referred to as a "surfer," rides on the forward face of a wave, which is most often carrying the surfer towards shore. Surf culture includes the people, language, fashion and life surrounding the art and sport of surfing. The history of surfing began with the ancient Polynesians. That initial culture directly influenced modern surfing, which began to flourish and evolve in the early 20th century, with popularity spiking greatly during the 1950s and 1960s, principally in Hawaii, Australia and California. It continues to progress and spread throughout the world. It has at times affected popular fashion, music, literature, films, slang and more.
