Early Japanese Surf History

As with most all areas of the planet, Japanese surfing began with the use of the body board (a.k.a. "belly board").

Image circa 1911.

Recently, some valuable research into early Japanese board surfing has been done by Nobby. Some great shots at his site, Nobby Wood Surfboards.

Misaki circa 1918.

Appreciations go out to Big Fish at Wooden Surfboards for passing this important info on.
